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.
