Obama’s Beach Weekend with Michelle and Sasha

Obama’s beach weekend with First Lady Michelle and Sasha Obama hole in one. BP oil spill over, and the beach weekend with the Obama’s looked fun. The President swam in Saint Andrew Bay off of Alligator Point.

BP oil spill seems long gone, but at least one photographer was allowed near the beach on Saturday. It was White House photographer Pete Souza. The official photo is part of the White House effort to show that Gulf Coast beaches and waters are in good shape despite the BP oil spill.

The president, first lady Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha reinforced that message Sunday by taking a boat ride. The presidential vessel, a converted 50-foot Navy Launch called the Bay Point Lady, had a large American flag waving from the stern. The Obamas could be seen looking for dolphins in St. Andrews Bay and chatting with members of the U.S. Coast Guard crew.

“As a result of the cleanup effort, beaches all along the Gulf Coast are clean, they are safe, and they are open for business,” Obama said in a statement before he headed out for the coast. Obama swam in Saint Andrew Bay off of Alligator Point, but technically not the Gulf of Mexico. Nine-year-old Sasha stole the show, hitting a hole-in-one off the first tee, much to the delight of her father, an avid golfer.
