Never one to shy from a social media photo-op, Serena Williams recently announced her water-based getaway to all who would view it.

Actor pal Colton Haynes, who recently attended Serena's New York Fashion Week show,  and Williams' trusted entourage member, Val Vogt, joined in on the wet foray.

By enjoying and amplifying this getaway, Serena's message to the WTA Tour might appear to be "Take that $450,000 and shove it" (read: save it!) if taken at face value. But in reality, this looks like some well deserved and much needed time to recuperate. This world has few places that can rest both mind and body quite like being on water.
