The Bidens departed The White House on Oct. 20 for their home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, according to the president's public schedule. They returned Oct. 23.
But the photo in the Instagram post isn’t from that trip. It’s from Aug. 2.
The Daily Mail caption says it shows the Bidens "reading and taking a nap on the beach during a trip to the shore in August."
Video footage from the recent October trip shows the Bidens walking along the beach.
