Kennebunkport's Lobster Summit Ends With A Fish Tale

Security was tight before Putin arrived.
After his arrival visitors, weren't even allowed this close to Walker's Point.
As the Lobster Summit ended, Kennebunkport again takes its place in history.

While Presidents Bush and Putin may not have moved very far forward in reaching mutual goals, hopefully they have eased the tensions of the past several months.

Their fishing trip seemed to go all Putin's way. Joined by President Bush (41) and (43), President Putin was the only one to land a fish. Reported to be 30 inches, my estimate based upon photos I saw had the catch closer to 24 inches. But hey, they had two rulers and one former ruler on the boat so perhaps their measurement was more accurate (do you get it?).

A peace rally gathered on the Kennebunkport Green on Sunday morning. There were speakers, music and a whole lot of banners. It was peaceful and after the initial gathering they marched along Ocean Avenue toward the Bush compound. For security reasons, they were stopped short.

The sounds of jets circling the area 24 hours per day and the sounds of helicopters overhead (literally) have subsided. The motorcades and their disruption of traffic have ended (and it was no big deal). Everything is back to normal in Kennebunkport and The Maine Stay Inn is ready for the Fourth of July.
