At 8:48 p.m. the motorcade arrived at the Bob Marley Museum and saw
aides including Ben Rhodes, Marvin Nicholson and Josh Earnest exit
their vehicles. We did not, however, see POTUS as he entered and then
took a brief tour of the museum, as only still photographers were
allowed to cover this movement. Your pooler has registered strong
objections to the White House about this.

New York Times photographer Steven Crowley graciously shares with the
pool that POTUS reminisced as he looked at a wall of framed records,
"I still have all the albums."

The pool was led to the front of the museum, a large Victorian house
whose courtyard has walls painted red, green and yellow and a statue
of Marley playing his guitar out front among the palm trees. "One
Love" was being piped from the speakers as POTUS emerged through the
front door along with a young woman who the White House identified as
his museum tour guide, Natasha Clark. They circled around back of the
museum without a word from POTUS.

There is a sign out front of the museum that reads, somewhat
incongruously given the venue, "No smoking eating drinking cameras
cell phones."

At 9:06 p.m., the motorcade is rolling again.
