Barack Obama appeared not to have a care in the world during a paddle board session in Hawaii, thousands of miles from the contentious Senate runoff election that will hugely impact his former vice president Joe Biden’s first term in office.
The 59-year-old was all smiles as he paddled through Kailua Bay’s turquoise waters around 3:30 p.m. Monday on the island of O’ahu with a Secret Service agent following close behind in a kayak, exclusive photos show.
The Obama family travels to Hawaii every year to celebrate Christmas in the former president’s home state, where he spent most of his childhood, People reported.
Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama went on a kayaking expedition a few days before Christmas. They were also spotted in the Aloha State in early December at the Mid-Pacific Country Club in Kailua, according to local television station KHON2.
