OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama had a deep fried seafood lunch on his island vacation, then worked it off playing basketball.

A rainy Tuesday kept the president away from the golf course on his third full day of a weeklong vacation on Martha's Vineyard. He hit the links the first two days.

But the president still got in his workout, heading to the Oak Bluffs School to play basketball with his friend Eric Whitaker and staff working on the trip.

The game came after the president picked up some fried shrimp, clams, french fries and onion rings at a waterfront restaurant called Nancy's. He took the meal over to senior adviser Valerie Jarrett's rented home nearby overlooking Nantucket Sound.
