Barack and Michelle Obama are taking a well-earned vacation in the British Virgin Islands after leaving the White House.
According to The Daily Mail, The former first couple posed with staff at Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport, the islands’ main airport. They then jetted off to the Caribbean on billionaire Richard Branson’s private plane.
The Obamas were then whisked away in a waiting motorcade to be taken to a nearby boat to complete their journey to Branson’s private retreat, Necker Island.
Michelle Obama was seen earlier boarding Branson’s Falcon 900EX at Palm Springs International Airport.
The couple spent the weekend relaxing at the home of Spanish ambassador James Costos and his interior designer partner Michael Smith after taking part in President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday.
Obama spent about five hours at Porcupine Creek golf course, the ultra-exclusive course owned by Oracle founder Larry Ellison.
Obama looked relaxed as he and a handful of secret service agents, negotiated the stunning 18-hole private course in several golf carts.
The course is by-invitation-only and Golf Digest once ranked as one of the top 20 golf courses in California. Obama played at Porcupine Creek in February this year and back in 2014 he was spotted there during another visit to the desert to meet with King Abdullah II of Jordan. The course is part of a huge $75 million, 249 acre estate owned by Ellison.
