“I took a little break and traveled across America with my dog,” the star shared. “This country of ours is beautiful. I didn’t know how beautiful it was until I drove through it and took the time to appreciate it. Have a great day.”
The post came weeks after D’Errico clapped back at haters who wrote she was “too old to wear a bikini” on Instagram. She responded by sharing a snapshot of herself in a pink two-piece.
“A lot of women complained about the 4th of July video I posted in a red white and blue bikini because they thought I was ‘classier than that’ and ‘too old to wear a bikini’ and , my favourite, ‘desperate'” she began her caption.
“Let me tell you something that might surprise you,” D’Errico added. “I can actually wear and do literally anything I want. On that note, here I am in a bikini crouching on a coffee table.

“My dad even called me about it, and he’s my hero. I still have haters in my DMs laughing at me squatting on my coffee table and saying my boobs have the Looks ugly, but it’s just white noise. I’m already thinking of where I can photograph myself squatting in a bikini next. Maybe the Golden Gate Bridge.
‘BAYWATCH’ ALUM DONNA D’ERRICO SAYS SHE STILL CAN’T SWIM: ‘I CAN’T EVEN WALK ON WATER’
D’Errico said she was still struggling with her body image after the incident, but was “working on it”.
“I was a very shy kid and was bullied at school,” she said. “I grew up and ran away to Hollywood to fulfill my dream of being an actress, only to start being bullied again. I read this book called ‘The Four Agreements’ and realized how it’s life changing when you stop taking the saying of the things people say personally.
“I still make mistakes and take things personally sometimes and then I have to go back and re-read this book again to protect myself from their Jedi mind tricks. I think we live in a time when people get tired …of all the judgmental bulls—.Or maybe I’m just older now and don’t care.I suspect it’s a bit of both.
D’Errico shot to fame on “Baywatch” as Donna Marco in 1996. She starred on the hit series until 1998. She kept herself busy over the years by appearing in several movies and TV shows. More recently, she starred in Sean Patrick Flanery’s “Frank and Penelope”.
