President Obama spent New Year’s Day last year enjoying the waves in Hawaii. White House photographer Pete Souza writes
A nice way to celebrate the New Year for the President was to jump in the ocean in his native state of Hawaii. He was on his annual Christmas vacation with family and friends, and went swimming at Pyramid Rock Beach in Kaneohe Bay.
This year, Obama spent most of New Year’s Day monitoring the end of the fiscal cliff battle. But late in the evening, he headed back to Hawaii to continue his interrupted vacation.
