Enjoy the View

This was our last weekend in the Bahamas. Another round of long runs, bike rides, and swimming. But before we hopped into training mode, we got to enjoy some boating in “recovery day” mode. Yes Friday was recovery, from the week of training, then Saturday and Sunday were longer training hours. I hopped in a few swim here and there and tackled a slow slow slow 5k. It felt good to be out there and it felt good to be the first one done, hehe.

Anyway, here’s a quick video and a few views from the boat.

Love the large homes with the yachts out front. The hubs and I fully intended to win lottery and then buy one, or both!  Anyone wanna pitch in for a vacation spot? Winking smile haha.


Well, that’s it folks. I head back to good old ATX today and the hubs comes back a day or two after. It will be good to be home but I will miss my time here. We always meet such amazing people when we travel. We get to act like locals and make a little home away from home. We create new friendships that last a lifetime. Yes, it is corny, but true. They don’t call me Corny Cotter for nothin.’


Life at home awaits. Several orders of healthy bites to be filled, hooray! And a new game plan for the hubs. Stay tuned for another stand by by Cotter report.

Cheers to new friends, new experiences, a successful journey, and a great view!
