Former Pres. Bush leaves Houston to spend summer in Maine

Just a couple weeks after leaving the hospital, former President George H.W. Bush is off to his vacation home in Maine.

Former President George H.W. Bush is officially on summer vacation in Maine.

Bush's spokesperson, Jim McGrath, tweeted a picture of George H.W. Bush waving to well wishers in Kennebunkport.

Mr. Bush was released from Methodist Hospital earlier this month. He was hospitalized with an infection April 22, a day after the funeral for his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush.

When asked about his recovery back then, Bush spokesperson Jim McGrath said, "The 41st President wants to go to Maine this summer. He’s the most goal-oriented person on the planet, and I would not bet against him.”

Hope nobody did.
