Take the drive along Ocean Avenue, just north of Kennebunkport and you will see Walker's Point. There's a pull-out on the side of the road where you can get a nice view of the compound. It's less than 5 minutes outside of town. This is an interesting and beautiful home.

It is always interesting to view the Bush compound, but this time, I had an extra-special view of it from the water, as we approached from the whale watch out of Kennebunkport. The grounds look lovely and I can imagine some lively storms out there. Our Whale Watch captain also pointed out the Bush's speed boat at dock. As I was visiting with a friend from out of state, we then drove down Ocean Avenue to view the house from the street. Always a lovely spot. For first timers, there are no facilities here; it really is just a roadside stop. There is a small pull off for a quick stop.

Very fun to see the Bush home(especially if you're a fan!) Beautiful view! Short drive from the town.

Ocean Avenue is a great place to walk or bike ride. Follow it out of Kennebunkport and it will lead you to Walker's Point where you can see George Sr's beachfront property. The Bush's actually were headed out for a yacht cruise and were very friendly when passing by.

Some of our family saw the Bush's outside - but we did not. Fun to see the homes, boats and the anchor monument.
