We happened to visit here on the day President Bush died. It made a visit to this beautiful place even more meaningful. Looking at the rugged coastline and the ocean brings kinship with those who came before.

You can see the flag flying at half mast on the lawn of the Bush home in Kennebunkport. It is quiet and serene. It was a privilege to sit overlooking the water on Walker Point and reflect on a great man.

This will not allow posting a link, but do a search on this site for excursions, etc. I would say mainly the beauty--beaches, etc. and FOOD! The food is to die for!

Is Walker's Point still fun? (3 Replies)
The last time I was in Walker's Point was about 15 years ago, and it was a blast...Steny's....Timers....some of the others I can't remember. Anyway...is it still fun? Have the bars changed? I'll be in Milwaukee, and was thinking about checking it out again. Thanks.

Timers is still there and so is Steny's, I think and several other bars. The area is getting more trendy. Many would say it has improved.
