President Obama left the beach just after it started to rain. At 2:50pm the motorcade picked up pool in our new van, which was procured rather hastily when our pool bus wouldn't start.
The beach here is breathtaking. Also it did not look at all crowded, which sort of adds to its beauty. The water is aquamarine, with volcanic tuff jutting out in the distance, including one nicknamed Rabbit Island that is a bird preserve. Pool only could see the beach through the rows of ironwood trees that are set behind it, along with picnic pavilions and a playground.
Pool held under a pavilion outside a recreation center and has not seen POTUS.
Uneventful motorcade ride to Kailua. Arrived at 3:17pm. It's sunny here. Holding at the pool hold house.
