EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama’s summer vacation off the Massachusetts coast is about to end.

The president is due back at the White House on Sunday night after spending two weeks with his family on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.

And what a break it turned out to be.

Obama’s attempt at rest and relaxation was largely overtaken by events involving Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, and protests in Ferguson, Missouri, linked to the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man.

Obama will be a scarce commodity at the White House in the coming weeks.

He heads to North Carolina on Tuesday to address the American Legion, and on Friday headlines fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island. Travel to Estonia and Wales is scheduled the following week.
