The First Black President’s First Thursday Ever on Martha’s Vineyard – by definition, an historic, and noteworthy, day.

10:19 a.m.  Rolling–kids and bikes aboard the motorcade today.

10:45 first aquinnah excursion for POTUS there are push bikes on back of a Land Rover in motorcade now idling in direction of Lobsterville. Press pool impressed by menemsha views but concerned about ticks and poor cell service.

11:23 POTUS and family plus friends Eric Whitaker and Konrad Ng on leisurely  bicycle ride in Aquinnah. Along lobsterville beach, POTUS wearing black, short sleeved shirt, beige trousers and sunglasses.

12pm Potus and team toured the gayhead lighthouse in aquinnah and
waved from balcony at large crowds gathered at aquinnah circle and
cliffs. Michelle wearing orange singlet white shorts and white
