Following a trip to speak this morning to speak at the Disabled American Veterans Convention in Orlando, Florida, President Obama and Mrs. Obama made their way via Air Force One to Cape Cod and then on to their vacation home on Martha’s Vineyard.
From the pool report:
The helos were down on the island at 3:52 and the motorcade is now making its way down the Edgartown-West Tisbury Road surrounded by the verdant woods of Martha’s Vineyard, passing the occasional pond and the roadside stone walls, toward the Obamas’ destination — Chilmark, for those who know the island. Small groups of locals have gathered to wave in welcome, some setting up roadside encampments to await the fleeting view of the First Vacationers, or at least their vehicle(s).
Just passed a big group at the small town center of West Tisbury that had gathered.
FWIW, the Obama daughters are not yet with their parents, and this pooler is told they are not here yet. But we have no further information.
At 4:13 we are holding in a field-turned-parking lot near the road, two gray-shingled residences nearby. POTUS went on up a road, which is closed to your pool and everyone else.
They’ll be there until August 18.
