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 played at the 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.

    With the sunny, lounging, golfing days, Obama definitely will leave his mind in Hawaii, while only his body returns to DC. NO WORK, NO THINKING will happen because he will be daydreaming.
