Similar to last year, President Joe Biden and wife Dr. Jill Biden will be enjoying the first lady’s 71st birthday at their beach house north of Rehoboth Beach. Her birthday is Friday, June 3.
Last year’s birthday beach visit was the first for Biden as president to their house in North Shores, which they purchased in 2017.
The White House announced the visit in a Daily Guidance and Press Schedule notice June 2. The notice says Biden “will join a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and National Security Advisory Jake Sullivan to discuss preparations for the NATO Summit in Madrid at the end of June and the strength of our transatlantic Alliance. In the evening, the President will travel to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where they will remain over the weekend.” According to the notice, the Bidens are expected to leave Washington, D.C. at 5:30 p.m. and then be in Rehoboth by 6:30 p.m.
Prior to the release of the daily guidance, the Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary flight restriction notice May 31. The FAA noticed restrictions beginning Thursday, June 2, and running through to 9:45 a.m., Sunday, June 5.
A reminder of security measures taken when the president is in town:
- Gordons Pond users should expect restrictions. The park’s parking lot is just around the corner from Biden’s home and is used as a landing site for Marine One
- The FAA’s temporary flight restrictions limit use of the airspace from Dover south to Ocean City, Md., and west to the Maryland border
- The Coast Guard establishes security zones in the ocean area immediately in front of North Shores beach and in the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal.
Since Joe was elected president, the Bidens have attended church, walked on the beach and gone for a few bike rides while in Rehoboth Beach. However, they have not gone out to eat or shopped downtown. If they do, send photos to reporter Chris Flood at email@example.com.
