Danica Patrick looked like she had a blast on the front of a boat while spending some quality time with a close friend. The Instagram update that she shared on Wednesday included a few photos and videos from a fun-filled day at the lake. The post had her followers going wild over her gym-honed bikini body.
Danica, 38, has plenty of experience driving high-powered machines, but the former NASCAR competitor’s boat ride looked a lot more relaxed than one of her high-pressure stock car races. The first slide in her upload was a snapshot of the athlete and a pal who she described as her “mermaid bestie.” The two women were standing up on a small vessel that was drifting on a lake located in a mountainous area. They were both clad in Daisy Dukes and sleeveless black T-shirts emblazoned with the words “Namaste Beaches.” The word “namaste” is often used in yoga classes, and Danica’s fans know that she’s a big fan of yoga who has mastered some difficult poses.
In her second photo, Danica was pictured sitting cross-legged on a built-in lounge seat. She rocked a leopard-print bikini that included a pair of low-rise bottoms and a bralette top with a scooped neckline and spaghetti straps. The bathing suit showed off her sculpted abs and toned legs.
The third slide was a short video clip of Danica standing at the bow of the boat and waving a red flag around. She was filmed from the back, which revealed that her bikini bottoms had a scrunch-butt seat and a high cut that provided a peek at her pert posterior. She also sported visible tan lines. Her pal could be heard from behind the camera saying that she was on “flag patrol.”
The final slide was a boomerang video of Danica and her bikini-clad pal jumping off the side of the vessel and twisting around while raising their arms in the air. The clip reversed and repeated before they began to fall.
In the caption of her post, Danica also revealed that she reenacted one of the romantic scenes from the movie Titanic while she was hanging out on the lake. Her Instagram followers were happy to see her having such a good time, and they also gushed over how great she looked.
“You look amazing, Danica! Looks like you were having tons of fun,” wrote one fan in the comments section of her post.
“Your body is perfect. So sexy,” another admirer remarked.
“Whoa, you look amazing,” read a third message.
A number of commenters also referenced Danica’s split from NFL star Aaron Rodgers.
“I bet that boy Aaron is kicking himself right now!” suggested one fan.
