-- GONE GOLFING -- After stopping at his Kailua vacation home, Obama headed back to Marine Corps Base Hawaii for a popular vacation pastime: golf. He played with friends Greg Orme, Bobby Titcomb and Joe Paulsen, according to the White House. As the motorcade left Kailua, a woman holding a small white dog held up a T-shirt emblazoned with a red heart and the words "Obama Girl."

-- SCENIC HIKE -- With the sun finally shining, Obama went for a hike with daughter Malia Obama and friends. They climbed Makapuu Point Lighthouse Trail, which offers sweeping views of Oahu's mountainous windward coast and offshore islands. The state park's website says it's about a two-mile hike (difficulty: "moderate") with views of Oahu's southeastern coastline, including Koko Head and Koko Crater.

-- BEST WISHES TO BUSH -- As Obama returned to his vacation home in the late afternoon, a spokesman said the president was made aware that former President George H.W. Bush was admitted to a Houston hospital after experiencing shortness of breath. "President Obama and the first lady send their good wishes to the former president and the entire Bush family during this holiday season," spokesman Eric Schultz said.
