President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden spent the weekend of Sept. 17 at their North Shores home. The pair didn’t venture too far from the nest, but did attend Saturday afternoon mass at St. Edmond Catholic Church in Rehoboth Beach and enjoyed a bike ride Sunday on the Gordons Pond Trail. The president was expected to return to Washington, D.C., Sept. 20, and then head to New York City later in the day for a bilateral meeting with United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres.
In advance of his arrival, the Gazette solicited photos of Biden sightings over the weekend. A few readers obliged, providing comments on seeing the president.
Rich King and another reader provided photos of the Bidens’ arrival. Pat Rocker sent a photo of Biden’s departure.
Brenda Scriptunas got a couple photos of Biden at church on Saturday. “It was very exciting,” she said.
Asha Moon and Peggy Castle took a few photos of Biden on his bike ride.
“Not the greatest photo, but I did manage to capture Joe when he was leaving Herring Point yesterday around noonish. Timing is everything – had no idea what was happening when we came up from the beach and saw all of the commotion. It became crystal clear moments later,” said Lewes’ Peggy Castle.
