NANTUCKET – Vice President Joe Biden is back in Washington Mondayafter spending Thanksgiving with his family on Nantucket.

The trip marked a return to the island for the Bidens, who have spent nearly every Thanksgiving on Nantucket for the past four decades. The Vice President did not visit Nantucket last year following the death of his son, Beau.

The visit was likely Biden’s last to the island as Vice President. He was spotted downtown last week and has kept a visible profile during his trips to Nantucket in the past.

The islands have been a popular vacation spot for the President and Vice President. The First Family vacationed every summer on Martha’s Vineyard during President Obama’s two terms in office, with the exception of 2012.
