FLOTUS print travel pool report #1
Annie Karni • POLITICO
February 11, 2017: 08:36 AM

Good morning from the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, just west of Delray Beach in Palm Beach County, where pool is holding ahead of FLOTUS' tour of the gardens with Akie Abe, the wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Mostly clear skies and 72 degrees.

FLOTUS and Abe will be lead on a tour through the gardens by Bonnie White LeMay, the Morikami park administrator; and Tamara Joy, deputy director and chief curator of the gardens.

For planning purposes only, until their arrival.

They are scheduled to make three photo-op stops: first, at the James and Hazel Gates Woodruff Memorial bridge, which marks the entrance to the Japanese gardens; next at the Karesansui Late Rock Garden, a style "perfected at Zen Buddhist temples," per flyer; and finally, Yamato Island, a modern garden that "represents the relationship between interior and exterior spaces," per same flyer, and is also the site of the garden's prized bonsai collection.

The garden tour was chosen by the East Wing, to highlight what FLOTUS adviser Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, in a statement to CNN, called Melania Trump's commitment "to her role as caretaker and nurturer."

POTUS and Abe, meanwhile, are scheduled to be playing golf at the Trump International Golf Club in Jupiter.
