New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles 08/22/08

I went to a Pats pre-season game on August 22, 2008 with Megan. We went to the Bass Pro shop across the parking lot before the game. We had a great time at the game. It was the first time I tried out my new camera. The zoom worked out great. I had should have practiced before hand so I knew how to override the shutter speed as it was a night game. Towards the end of the gave I got the hang of it a bit more. Here are a couple of pics from the game.

Kennebunkport, ME Vacation - 2008

For 20 years we spend one week vacationing in Kennebunkport, ME. We rent a house that will fit 13 of us. Here are some 2008 Pictures.

The beach and the Rocks ...

2008 with President George W Bush

Each year we vacation for a week in Kennebunkport, ME. This year we rented a different house that was near Ocean Avenue. It was a great location for walking to the rocks. We had some unexpected traffic issues when President Bush arrived for a family wedding. I was able to take some pictures of President Bush when he arrived at his father’s house. The fog was in and I was 450 yards away. I was standing next to the camera man in the yellow shirt in one of my pictures below. I guess I looked like one of them until I sat on the rock and used the fence to try to get more stability from that distance. That lasted about 10 seconds then I was told to move to where everyone else was.

The Bush fishing boat must be a lot of fun. It has three 300hp motors. I would love to take my kids fishing with the President. One day when we were on the rocks I heard the boat roaring out to sea in the fog. I took this picture of the President going fishing. I was ready to go fishing too but never got the call.

The TV cameras were everywhere this year. The Coast Guard blocked all boat traffic around the compound.
