What do you get for your tax dollars in Kennebunk, Maine?

.

Flowers.

That’s what you get for the outrageously high property tax bills the town of Kennebunk sends out twice a year.

.

.

But what lovely flowers they are.

.

.

Every free space in the village is filled with them.

.

.

It’s impressive and quite beautiful.

Is it any wonder President Bush’s family has their summer home in Kennebunkport?

  1. Delivered some *mumble* to President Bush’s house, once. It was a terror taking over 50′ of semi-truck there, but I had the best escort in and out of their that a driver ever had. Think I may have squashed some of them posies with my wheels, and would have surely been hit with some hefty fines if it hadn’t been for the escort taking responsibility for getting the truck in.

    It was my first introduction to New England ‘chowdah’. I could have eaten my weight in it. It was hell being polite and refusing a second helping.

      1. We stayed in Kennebunkport on our last trip to Maine . . . at the Colony Hotel . . . before taking a windjammer cruise out of Rockport for 3 days and concluding at the Balance Rock Inn in Bar Harbor for 3 more. Great time. But it’s been awhile. That was 2004. We are OVERDUE!
