Drinking Taint Town Ale by Shipyard Brewery
Just arrived in Kennebunkport Maine; looking to spot a few Bush http://t.co/jRMgBvMSjd
We made it to Maine! And our first stop was Kennebunkport, famous for housing the Bush compound. It might have been the excitement of reaching Maine but everything seemed prettier! Our anchorage was in the river on one of the town moorings and we had great access to the town and a beautiful view from our backyard.
The town was really cute and I loved all the shops. I missed my mom though because the boys weren’t that in to shopping. Go figure! I think I need to bring my mom back here to really do it right!
We took a trolley ride around town so that we could see more of the sights. We got a great view of the Bush compound. And, we were told that the elder Bush was in residence at the time.
The trolley also took us by an old monastery and some of the local beaches.
After our trolley tour we walked around some more and enjoyed the beautiful weather and the beautiful town.
We met an interesting guy who was solo sailing a Pearson 303 (just like our old boat Frog). He was a school teacher who took off on his boat for the summer. He had just found a message in a bottle from a family who had enjoyed their Maine vacation. Since they had just put it in the water 2 days before he found it he said he was going to wait a week before contacting them so they didn’t feel bad. LOL!
In one of the local stores we found a new addition to Stanley’s wardrobe. Now he is ready for any occasion!
