Travel Pool Report No. 1
Dec. 29, 2013
Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii

Aloha! If it’s morning in Hawaii, it’s time to hit the gym. President Obama left his vacation home in Kailua at approximately 7:48 a.m. local on this overcast and (relatively) cool Sunday morning. The presidential motorcade whisked Obama through his tranquil Kailua neighborhood, past a few joggers, dog-walkers and phone camera-wielding onlookers, and onto the Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay. At 7:53 a.m., the motorcade continued on to the gym and the pool peeled off to Starbucks at the always lovely Mokapu Mall. (Pool voted for Starbucks over McDonald’s.)

PS I can’t take full credit for the pic representing the White House Press Pool van….yes, I took the pic in Haiti, but a GretaWire blogger made a joke that it looked like the White House Press pool……I used it. I think the White House Press pool could use a lively colored vehicle…may cheer them up a bit?
