The Martha’s Vineyard Gazette is reporting that the First Family will stay at the Blue Heron Farm for their end-of-summer holiday. The White House has confirmed that the President is scheduled to arrive on August 23. But there are “unofficial” claims that Mrs. Obama, Malia and Sasha will arrive earlier as houseguests of friends.
Some folks in the cyberworld are huffing and puffing about the cost of this trip, especially in light of the economy. Rental amounts have not been disclosed, but similar properties go for $35,000 to $50,000 per week. [It is understood that the Obamas are footing the bill.]
