Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman is flexing her beach volley skills without physically being on sands. The 26-year-old former athlete, home for COVID like everyone else, today marked how much she misses real life, sharing a stunning and skimpy beach snap for her 2.1 million Instagram followers. Aly, who has been partnering up with Amazon amid the global pandemic and for the greater good, dedicated her Tuesday snap to how life once was, and her followers think it’s the cutest thing ever. See why below.
Scroll for the photo. Aly, just yesterday, made headlines for enjoying a yoga pants doggy playdate, with the vibes on her IG very much showing pandemic lifestyle. The 2012 “Fierce Five” and 2016 “Final Five” captain today shared a beach shot showing her lying on her front, and it was vacay vibes, like woah.
The photo featured the Massachusetts native on fine shores, backed by beach structures and bystanders, and seemingly somewhere exotic. Fans saw Aly in a bright green swimsuit and tiny denim shorts, also pouting from behind shades as she held a neon orange ball.

“Those soles and toe curl,” another fan wrote.
The snap comes as Aly largely poses while flaunting her green thumb and with her house plants, something that seems to be giving the gymnast solace right now.
“I can get lost in arranging flowers. I sit on the floor & I’m in my own world! I like arranging flowers because there is no right or wrong way to do it, whatever feels right & whatever smells I enjoy, I can incorporate,” she wrote this month.

Aly was back with her plants in early December and in promo mode for Aero Garden as she showed off her progress, adding:
“The flowers that I cut from the garden will grow back. Herbs, lettuce, vegetables, flowers grow back so long as you don’t cut too much of the plant.”
In fact, home seedlings even featured on Aly’s 2020 “Things I Can’t Live Without” list with NY Mag, something that adorably also saw Aly list her $14 Aeie baseball cap. Scroll for more photos.
Aly is one to follow if you suffer from anxiety. The gymnast has been sharing her tips to battle it, and they aren’t complicated.
“If you want a quick tip that has helped me: for those of you who feel overwhelmed or anxious I recommend trying to put your hand or hands over your heart space & you can also put one hand over your stomach,” she told fans this month.
