The President and First Lady stepped away from their family at secluded get away to spend time with some of the families celebrating Christmas at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. There are over 600 families stationed at the base – visiting them has become an annual tradition for the First Couple.
The visit to this wind-swept base on a peninsula on Oahu has become almost a ritual for Obama, who seeks refuge from the stresses of Washington during his annual vacation in Hawaii. He frequently visits the base’s golf course and gym. It’s also one of the few moments when Obama appears in a public setting during his trip. Aside from a basketball game and dinner at a Honolulu restaurant, the Obamas have remained largely out of sight since arriving here over the weekend.
