Blowing Cave

Turn onto Ocean Ave and follow the road until you come to a pullover spot on the right with a huge black metal anchor. Directly across the way, you will see the Bush Home. You can hear it as you walk down toward the water. The cave is to the left. It takes water in and spouts out air. Really neat!

Dolphin Tree Carving, Blowing Cave

My family and I searched the area for the Dolphin Tree Carving. We even talked to some locals who said they couldn't find it any more. New residents moved onto the property and reconstructed the yard, so I think it was destroyed.

Carved dolphin.

It's different. A little moldy and green, but still a site.

A little smaller than we hallucinated... wonder how that water spout action compares?

Dolphin Tree Carving, Blowing Cave

Along the roadside on route 35 going to Kennebunkport you will find a dolphin carved out of a tree. The tree was destroyed by the ice storm in '99. The owner of the property carved it, or had it carved and it adds a nice view while driving along the road from Kennebunkport.

Also, there is Blowing Cave, located near the Bush compound on Ocean Ave. in Kennebunkport.
