7/3/96 - T+2 - Where's George?
I woke up this morning in Kennbunkport Maine. Boy does this place have the New England
feel! As you look down main street it looks
just like it did on the news when George and Barbara were here. I looked and I
looked, but the Bushs aren't here right now. I did go by a look at their house. It
basically looks like all the other big houses around here. The locals say that they prefer
that Bush isn't president any more. All the Secret Service and security made their lived
miserable. There is a wonderful downtown shopping area with all kinds of small stores
carrying cloths, crafts, and such.
My only break down was a new watch, those of you who know me know that I have a weakness
for fine mechanical objects. The fudge store was calling my name so I had to stop and pick
up a pound of home made fudge. I haven't
touched it yet, but I don't think it will last long, hehehehe.
The village it's self is very tight as you can see from the pictures. Cars can barely
pass on the streets and there are pedestrians everywhere. This is definitely a walking
town. I'd love to come back here and spend some more time, I didn't even get started on
seeing the beautiful scenery.
On the way out of town there is a special house called the Wedding Cake House. It was
built by a seaman who had to leave for sea before he and his new bride were able to have a wedding reception. While he was at
sea, he carved the beautiful woodwork that adorns the house now. It was build in 1820.
While on the way out of town, I picked up a hitchhiker. He's a rather scruffy lot who
calls himself Sancho. He says he's headed to LA to make his fortune in the music business.
He doesn't talk much, I think he may be on the run, but he's good company and picks up his
share of the driving. He seems to be a dedicated lot and will serve me well on my
From Kennbunkport it was down to Portsmouth New Hampshire to look for computer parts.
There aren't any computer stores in Kennebunkport, hahahahaha. After finding the parts I
needed, it's off to Vermont. The country side was beautiful with rolling hills and green
forests. It was pretty much a speed run up to Montpelier Vermont. Montpelier has the
destination of being the smallest state capitol in the country. I think I'll board down
here for the holiday.
That's all for today, I hope you all are having as much fun as I.
