Marine One lifted from the South Lawn at noon sharp, destination Camp David.

POTUS left the White House from the Diplomatic entrance, first walking toward the helicopter but de‎touring upon sight of Luca Martinez, age 4, son of AP photographer Pablo Martinez Monsivais, who was sitting among the press corps.

POTUS came over to young Luca, sporting safety glasses and superhero sleeves, and put out his fist. Luca complied with the fist bump, and POTUS blew it up, as the kids say.

Luca later nodded in agreement that this was a cool experience.

POTUS headed toward Marine One solo, sporting sunglasses, a brown jacket over white shirt, and jeans. Following after POTuS boarded were Pete Souza and Joe Paulsen, lugging a couple overnight bags and briefcases for the one-day stay at the presidential retreat.

On this picture perfect May afternoon we now have a lid.‎ No further guidance on POTUS' plans on this rare Camp David trip for him.
