If there’s one thing Cindy Crawford loves about summer, it’s time spent at the cottage.

On Thursday, the 56-year-old supermodel took to her Instagram stories to give her 6.6 million followers another look into her glamorous lake life.

In the photo, the mother-of-two stood barefoot on a dock overlooking a peaceful, sparkling lake. She donned a flowy beige and black animal print skirt and a cozy black sweatshirt.

“The calm after the storm,” the model wrote while tagging her husband, Rande Gerber, whom she’s been married to since 1998.
