Former President George H.W. Bush arrived at his summer house in Maine on Sunday.

Dozens of “well wishers” greeted the president’s motorcade when he arrived in Kennebunkport, Maine, where he will spend the summer.

"The 41st President waving to well wishers in Dock Square on arrival in Kennebunkport, ME today," spokesperson Jim McGrath tweeted.

Bush had been in Texas recovering from an infection that spread to his blood. He was hospitalized one day after the funeral for his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush.

"My beloved dad is in Maine," Jeb Bush, one of the former president's sons, tweeted.

Friends of the former president said that he was eager to get to Maine ever since his wife passed away last month, Fox News reported.


George H.W. Bush has spent every summer since his childhood — excluding the ones during World War II — in Kennebunkport.
