President Biden and the First Lady went for a mid-morning bike ride on the beach. After a madcap dash through the islands abutting Charleston and a brief run on the beach, pool was stationed on a beach on Kiawah Island.
President Biden was wearing a blue shirt and khaki shorts and a Beau Biden foundation hat. His bike did not have toe clips.
There were a smattering of people walking on the beach or playing in the gentle surf. Some sat under blue umbrellas or in beach clothes and eyed the assembled reporters, figuring something’s going on.
Biden said “no” when asked if he’d talk to the press and added “gotta go get your bathing suits.”
When asked about his vacation, Biden said, “I’m enjoying it a great deal.”
The President said he’s “been on the phone a lot.”
President Biden did take selfies with beachgoers and had brief conversations out of earshot of the press.
A half dozen people gathered near the pool and applauded President Biden and the First Lady as they rode by.
