President Obama's Hawaii vacation: Day 14

KAILUA, Hawaii (AP) — How President Barack Obama spent the 14th day of his family's holiday vacation in Hawaii on Friday:

— EXERCISE: Obama worked out in the morning at a gym on the Marine Corps base near his rented vacation home in the small town of Kailua outside Honolulu. The president has exercised at the gym most mornings during his stay in the islands.

— SANCTIONS: The president signed an executive order imposing fresh sanctions on North Korea. The penalties target the North's defense industry and spy service in an attempt to punish Pyongyang for a crippling cyberattack against Sony.

— CALLING REID: White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Obama called Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid to wish him a fully and speedy recovery. Reid broke several ribs and facial bones on Thursday when a piece of exercise equipment snapped at his Nevada home.

—GOLF: The president returned to the Marine base for a round of golf at the oceanfront Kaneohe Klipper course with Darrell Harrington and childhood friends Mike Ramos and Bobby Titcomb.

—OUT TO EAT: The president and his family dined with friends at Nobu, a well-known restaurant in Waikiki.
