After letting her hair down, she then had a dip in the cool, picturesque water, with a female friend by her side. 

Erica later couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she boarded a yacht which was docked in a waterway. 

She looked stunning in a fitted, green dress, with roughly-chopped cut details at the hem, and a pair of sunglasses.

The brunette had her hair down, went barefoot after removing her pale brown sandals, and carried a large tote bag with embroidery details.     

The model has three children – daughters Indigo, 12, and Emmanuelle, eight, and son Jackson, 11 – who she shares with billionaire James Packer, 53. 

Erica married casino tycoon James in 2007, before separating six years later.

The couple have remained amicable since the split, and are often pictured holidaying together with their three children.  

Erica has suffered heartbreak since her relationship with James fell apart.

In 2018, she found romance with Cuban artist Enrique Martinez Celaya – a divorced father whose children attended the same school as Erica’s.  

They pair sparked engagement rumours in 2019 after Erica was pictured wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger.

However, the romance was short-lived, as she split from Enrique just one year later.
