KAILUA, Hawaii (AP) -- How President Barack Obama spent the first day of his holiday vacation in Hawaii on Saturday:
- QUIET TIME AT HOME: Obama and the first family spent the morning at their vacation home in the breezy seaside town of Kailua and were greeted by sunny, blue skies. A handful of protesters stood outside the home's entrance holding signs that read "Close Guantanamo Now!" and "No more drone killings." Bicyclists and joggers swooshed by taking little notice of the heavy security around the neighborhood. Obama's Hawaii vacations have become part of the holiday experience on Oahu.
- GOLFING: Obama headed out before noon to play golf at Marine Corps Base Hawaii on Kaneohe Bay, an emerald-colored bay flanked by jagged mountains just north of Kailua. A young boy in a baseball cap waved an American flag as the motorcade passed. On base the president was joined for golf by friends Mike Brush, Joe Paulsen and Bobby Titcomb, according to the White House Press Office.
