Photo taken on Wednesday, September 10th. Another Day at the Beach? I’ve was out photographing at Kennebunk Beach yesterday afternoon, when much to my surprise I met Barbara Bush walking her dogs. She has a special walker that is specifically designed with large wheels to allow her to safely stroll the beach. I introduced myself and told her I was a local photographer. As her beloved dogs scampered around, I wished her and her husband the best. She was very gracious and the epitome of a classy lady. In the thirty years that I’ve lived in Kennebunk, I’ve never seen her on the beach! As other dogs approached the former first lady, she greeted them, and seemed to enjoy being able to go for a stroll on a beautiful, sunny day with her dogs. She was accompanied by one visible Secret Service agent who kept within a respectable, but close proximity. Kennebunk (Gooch’s) Beach is about a half mile long. I was their taking other photographs yet noticed that she walked the entire length of the beach and back, at least twice! Kudo’s to Mrs Bush for a two plus mile walk. What a fabulous example she sets. Credit: (c) Mark Ettinger Photography
