Presidential visit on Martha's Vineyard

... means hyperactivity among federal agencies. I didn't get to see the Obamas arrivals, nor did many folks, but I couldn't miss these symptoms of Presidential presence.

These were buzzing about, beginning 48 hours before arrival.

These ostentatiously "protected" the ferry boat off the island this morning.

I figure there's a lot of justifying agency budgets going on. Okay by me for the Coast Guard. They lost a boathouse to fire in Menemsha harbor this summer.

Boy, the President is really getting around. Hattie's Web has a posting on him being in Hawaii. It must be getting near election time. ;-)

Enjoy your trip.
