The Obama administration may be knee-deep in scandals right now, but it doesn’t look like that will put a damper on the first family’s vacation plans.
The Boston Globe reports that the Obamas are planning a Martha’s Vineyard summer vacation, including an “extended” stay for first lady Michelle Obama:
There’s been no official word from the White House, but we’re hearing the Obamas have their eyes on a house in Farm Neck on Martha’s Vineyard. During three previous visits, POTUS and FLOTUS and their daughters Malia and Sasha stayed at Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark. But British architect Norman Foster has since bought the place for $21.9 million. Farm Neck is secluded and, most importantly for the president, has a nice golf club. We’re told first lady Michelle Obama and the children may be on the island for an extended period, with the president joining them on occasional weekends and for two weeks at the end of August.
The Obama clan avoided their annual trek to Martha’s Vineyard last year in the midst of the 2012 presidential campaign.
