I’m back from the Bahamas! I never officially announced my departure on the blog, just in case someone was planning on robbing the house.
Day 1 of our vacation was Thursday morning. A 4:45 wake-up and two flights later, we arrived in Freeport, Bahamas.
When planning the trip, we decided to go for one less night and get a bigger room. I’m really happy we did this. We had a big bedroom,
Our first day was spent exploring the market next to our hotel and relaxing. The only bad part was that there was no grocery store nearby and I was hoping to save money by making use of our mini-kitchen for lunches.
We also went on a 2 mile run that day.
The Bahamians really got into the Christmas spirit. We heard Christmas tunes everywhere we went.
Day 3 was colder with winds over 20 miles per hour! I went for a 5k run, but otherwise we pretty much relaxed and took advantage of our suite. My favorite part was the espresso machine and complementary breakfast.
Eaten outside on our balcony when it was warm enough!
On our last full day, yesterday, we went on a bike tour. Unfortunately, it was in the low fifties all day and windy. But we made the best of it and got to see more sights and learn some history about the island. We did a total of 12 miles at a very leisurely pace aka I could probably have run faster.
The bike tour ended at a beautiful beach where I got to try conch salad. The conch is a Bahamian specialty. The conch had been caught that morning and they cut everything up in front of you, including peppers, onion and tomatoes.
Although the weather wasn’t ideal (our 70 year old cab driver said it was colder than she could remember it ever being) we still had a great time and much needed relaxation! I also managed to stay within my weight watchers points, but it is always hard to estimate when eating out every meal. Even if I wasn’t on Weight Watchers, I cannot wait to have home cooked meals for the rest of the week! Expect to see a bunch of recipe posts in the upcoming week. I get really sick of eating out 2-3x a day when on vacation. Plus none of the meals we had were amazing-delicious anyways.
I hope all of you who were celebrating had a very Merry Christmas!
