First Family Vacation

Obamas Arrive at Martha's Vineyard

New England’s in a tizzy—after a slight delay due to Hurricane Bill, the Obama family has finally begun their weeklong stay in Martha’s Vineyard. After arriving at the Air Station in Cape Cod, they boarded a helicopter headed for the Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark. The first family had a few lookie-loos—dozens of people took photos of their motorcade, and kids and adults sat on vans and convertibles to view them rolling by, some even holding signs that said “Aloha Obama Family,” reports the Cape Cod Times. There are still rumors that the president will stop to visit ailing Senator Edward Kennedy at the family compound in Hyannisport—although a source at Politico.com says there are no plans yet for an Obama visit.
