President Obama and his wife Michelle are back on Martha's Vineyard for a final day of vacation before the First Family heads back to D.C. Sunday.

Obama arrived at the Island off the Massachusetts coast after he delivered a brief and emotional eulogy at the funeral of Sen. Ted Kennedy in Boston Saturday morning.

The Obama family had been spending the week at the New England destination before Kennedy's death compelled them to interrupt the retreat. They will be back in Washington Sunday for a few days before heading to Camp David in Maryland for a few more days of vacation.

They had been staying at a $35,000 a week ocean side manor and spent some time golfing, bike riding and going on ice cream runs with daughters Sasha and Malia.
