Under grey skies and scattered showers, the presidential motorcade headed down-Island at 11:50 a.m, arriving at the Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown just after noon. The White House pool reporters did not see the president or first lady.
The motorcade passed a very wet biker on South Road and a runner paused in front of the Grey Barn Farm and Dairy to let the motorcade pass. Greeters waived on the porch of Alley's General Store.
The White House announced this morning that the president received his daily briefing from National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice.
