Former US President Barack Obama is enjoying his extended vacation in Hawaii.
Recently, clicks showed him paddleboarding shirtless with his secret service member following him nearby in a kayak. Clad in black swim trunks and an $84 shark deterrent too, the ex-president smiled away without a care in the world.
Clearly, the images showcased how Georgia and the drama related to the current US elections weren’t on his mind. As it is, the Obamas are vacationing thousands of miles away from the Senate runoff elections. The result of this standoff will greatly impact his former vice president, Joe Biden’s initial office term.
Meanwhile, Obama made his way through the serene Kailua Bay, surrounded by glistening turquoise blue waters.
The clips, released on Monday, showed how he embraced the island of O’ahu, alongside his secret service agent.Wearing a bulletproof vest, the man followed the ex-leader’s every move, keeping a close watch in a kayak.
Every year, the Obamas travel to Hawaii to celebrate the festive season of Christmas. As it is, this exotic destination is very near and dear to Obama’s heart. And that’s because this is where he spent most of his childhood.
Just a few days before Christmas, the paparazzi caught glimpses of Barack and Michelle enjoying an intimate kayaking expedition. Clearly, they were both spotted in the Hawaiian state, living up their best moments while soaking up some much-needed sun and fresh air.
A few videos also went viral, showcasing how Obama took a few stumbles as well as plunges into the water, slipping and sliding off the board. One photographer who clicked the 49-year-old says that he was mostly having a good time.
It was safety first as photographers managed to click his expensive shark deterrent too. This is a device that creates magnetic waves to deter dangerous beasts from coming too close.
