Kennebunkport Residents Recently Honored Bush 41 With "An Anchor to Windward"!

From Wikianswers.com comes this definition of "An Anchor to Windward"; "During a storm, if a ship is being blown toward a hazard, the crew can drop the anchors on the windward side of the ship (the side facing the wind) in order to stop the ship from running aground or wrecking. Such an "anchor to windward" is a final effort, when the hope of forward progress has been abandoned, and danger or disaster is at hand."

Kennebunkport has always been "an anchor to windward" for President George H. W. Bush.  It is a place where he has come each summer to refresh, relax, unwind and to find friends.  His family has owned "Walker's Point" since the early 1900's.  He came here as a child, as a college man and lastly, he brought his family each summer for vacations. Now he and Barbara entertain grandchildren here.  It certainly has been and continues to be a refuge from the storms he has faced in his many years of public service.  We at the Captain Lord Mansion are proud of his service to our country and our community.

Last September a group of local citizens honored President Bush by purchasing and dedicating a real anchor memorial which is located on the edge of Ocean Ave. directly opposite the Bush family compound.  It is from a World War II era ship and is a fitting memorial for a man most folks in the Kennebunks call a friend.  Your Innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
