KANEOHE BAY, Hawaii (AP) -- How President Barack Obama spent the seventh day of his family's holiday vacation in Hawaii on Friday:

- MORNING WORKOUT: Obama began his morning as he did many other days of his vacation by exercising at a gym at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. On the way back to the Kailua vacation home, a child sat on a shirtless man's shoulders watching the passing motorcade and children jumped on a trampoline.

- BEACH TIME: Obama joined the first family and friends in the late morning under sunny skies at a beach at Bellows Air Force Station in Waimanalo. It was a beautifully warm day with soft breezes and crystal clear, turquoise water. Michelle, Malia and Sasha Obama were spotted through the window of a black sport utility vehicle as the motorcade whizzed past horse stables, a youth correctional facility and orchid farms. A small crowd of onlookers greeted the motorcade as it arrived.

- GONE GOLFING: The president hit the links again with friends Greg Orme, Bobby Titcomb and Mike Ramos, the White House said. This time, they golfed at Royal Hawaiian Golf Club in Kailua, a lush course with views of the Koolau Mountains. The club is currently under renovation and only has nine holes open, according to its website.
