A nice bike ride is the activity for this morning. A very cute scene ably described by the Wall Street Journal’s Elizabeth Williamson in this pool report just filed. I do feel, though, that they should keep us nosy press types out of this and just do it privately. But since it’s out there, I share it with you.
10:39a we arrived in West Tisbury, where the 5,100-acre Manuel Correlus State Forest, which occupies the center of the island, is criss-crossed with a network of dirt and paved bike trails. The airport where we stopped occupies the center of the forest. The forest offers a variety of activities including horseback riding, skiing and frisbee golf. The poor island Heath Hen, now extinct, used to reside in this forest. Google’s your friend for addl info.
We took a position 60 feet off a narrow paved trail waiting for potus and co. to pass. Secret Service stopped and swept a couple cycling through, then let them pass, another couple walked a giant mastiff and small pug came thru, wandering somewhat cluelessly off the trail in our line of sight. Sasha came first in white top and brown shorts followed closely by flotus in grey sleeveless top and white cropped pants. After a short break came potus in white shirt and his grey jeans looked to your pooler rather mom-like. He was smiling and laughing, said “hi guys” to pool. Next was Malia, also laughing, in blue sleeveless top and shorts. All four in the family wore helmets, unlike last year when potus did not wear a helmet.
