During the last century KENNEBUNKPORT has become a popular resort area and even more so in recent years as many sightseers come to view the summer home of former U.S. President George H. W. Bush, also visited by his son President George W. Bush and his family. The town includes Cape Porpoise, the original settlement and Goose Rocks Beach. Beautiful 18th and 19th century houses line the Ocean Avenue. Goat Island Lighthouse, just out on the water from the Cape Porpoise Pier, is a favourite viewing spot.


Two miles east of Kennebunkport's Dock Square is the fishing village of CAPE PORPOISE. At Cape Porpoise Pier, off Route 9, you can watch lobstermen unloading their catch and view Goat Island Lighthouse. It was wonderful to experience the tranquility and beauty of this quiet seaside village.
In the accompanying pictures, you will see stacks of lobster traps and some of the fishing boats in the harbor.

    When I was a kid and living in Vermont, we went to the coast of Maine on our vacations, including Kennebunkport. A beautiful place.

    Did you see any porpoise at Cape Porpoise? My navigator, ahem, missed that spot but we did find Bush's house by accident!
