The dog and I were out cruising the area after the speech. Our goal was to get over to the Polo Fields. Nope! Made it to the Savannah Center parking lot. Buena Vista and El Camino (including the MMPs) we’re closed until the motorcade passed. There were a few people driving up in carts that had been at Spanish Springs. They must have came the “back way”. A couple was trying to get to Glenview for golf. I bet they missed their tee time.

Later, we heard helicopters and saw shadows cross our solar tube. The outbound helicopters flew right over the house.

Most likely there was no traffic allowed on El Camino as it was for the dedicated use of the motorcade before and during the Presidential visit. Probably opened again after the Marine 1 lift off.

I had no idea that they would be using the V-22 Osprey for presidential transportation.

Picture taken of one of three departing from the east grass parking lot at the polo field after the event at Spanish Springs. It’s a good shot of the ball field fence.

The speech was presented live on Fox 35.
I just think many folks like me, just aren't going to go out where the odds of seeing him approach zero.

There were a few protesters that were blowing whistles during the whole speech, in peoples ears, very loud and annoying. She was one of two that I saw being escorted, not hauled, away from the crowd.

It was also streamed live on YouTube. It was great to watch it from the comfort of your living room with no waiting for traffic or having to go through security.
