Anatomy of a Presidential Candidate's Vacation, Part III

(CBS)
From CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic:

(HONOLULU) After briefly interrupting his vacation to talk about the conflict in Georgia, Barack Obama slipped back into vacation mode.

He played with his daughters Sasha and Malia at his vacation rental overlooking the ocean in Kailua. Later in the afternoon, he changed into khakis and a short sleeve beige shirt and headed to his grandmother's apartment with his wife Michelle. The apartment building was swarming with local media, so the Obamas slipped in through an underground driveway.

After visiting for about a half hour, they headed to the Ward Movie Theater, where they again dodged cameras who chased the motorcade by foot into the theater's underground parking lot. The Obamas watched the "The Dark Knight" with another couple, before heading to dinner at the posh Mariposa Restaurant. The restaurant is located on the third floor of the Neiman Marcus department store and has a view of the ocean.

On Tuesday evening, Obama will attend a fundraiser - this will be his first campaign event in Oahu since he held a welcome rally upon his arrival on Friday.
