Presidental Vacations & Retreats: President George H.W. Bush at Walker's Point

The walls in President George H.W. Bush's private office at Walker's Point in Maine, seen here in 2004, was a testimony to his love of fishing. Bush commented once, after having a fish hook removed from his ear while fishing in the Atlantic off Kennebunkport, Maine, "If that had been in the eyeball, I guess we would have gone in, but it wasn't, and I didn't. After all, it was a perfect day for bluefish."
