President Barack Obama is returning to Washington this evening, ending the first family’s annual Kailua vacation in which he went back to Washington, D.C., for a week to reach a compromise with congressional Republicans over the “fiscal cliff” tax and spending standoff.

The Obamas arrived in Honolulu Dec. 22 and stayed at a beachside vacation compound in Kailua. The president flew back the day after Christmas and returned Wednesday morning.

Friday, Obama played golf at the Palmer Course at Turtle Bay Resort with Bobby Titcomb, Marty Nesbitt, Sam Kass and Marvin Nicholson. Playing in gusting wind and a driving rain, they took about five hours to complete their round of golf, a White House media pool reported.

The president and his wife also went out to dinner with friends at Nobu's in Waikiki.
