Obama takes a walk around his Chicago neighborhood

(CNN) - President Obama enjoyed a short stroll Saturday in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago after spending a rare night in his home there.

Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett joined Obama as they walked to the home of one of his friends, according to pool reporters traveling with the president. The two were closely tailed by a Secret Service agent, and police had closed off several blocks around the area.

As Obama walked past reporters he said, “Nice day, huh?” He also asked them if they’d spent any money in Chicago the night before.

When reporters asked the president if he’d made breakfast for himself at home, he replied, “No, I woke up too late.”

Obama is in Chicago following campaign events there and in Minneapolis on Friday. This is the first time Obama has spent the night at his Chicago home since April 2011.
