After her surprise trip to Iceland, fans weren’t sure if Blue Bloods star Sami Gayle would be celebrating the Fourth of July stateside or not. However, yesterday, the actress behind Nicky Reagan posted a stunning photo of herself in New York. In the image, she places her hand on the railing in front of glittering blue waters and bright sunlight. We can part of the New York skyline in the distance. Ever the fashion icon, Gayle shows off her effortlessly cute outfit, wearing a floral-patterned, navy blue playsuit and Christian Dior slides. In her caption, she simply wishes her followers, “Happy 4th everyone!”
‘Blue Bloods’ Star’s Icelandic Adventures
Before her latest photo, Gayle posted frequent updates of her spontaneous vacation to Iceland. In need of some serenity and escape, the Blue Bloods star quickly packed a bag and took a flight to the northern nation. Once she arrived, Gayle informed Instagram followers of her travels and her need for impulsive adventures.
“I love SPONTANEITY,” Gayle wrote in the caption of her video of breathtaking landscape. “Some of the best moments of my life were born from an impulsive decision — a last minute trip, an instinct to go somewhere I otherwise would not, etc.”
She continued, “So, earlier this week, when my brother asked me if I wanted to come with him and his best friend to Iceland, I immediately said yes and was on a plane a couple of days later. And, as you’ll see in my stories, it was absolutely the right choice.”
The Blue Bloods actress concluded her post with a vital piece of advice for her fans:
“When opportunity knocks — if it’s feasible — open the door. You never know what you might find, see and learn.”
Gayle Experiences Fire and Ice in Iceland
Following her video, Gayle next posted a photo of herself on a boat in a life vest. She holds a block of ice in her bare hands. While she may not have been able to feel her fingertips, she was thankfully dressed in a sweater and winter cap to keep the rest of her warm.
Behind her, cerulean waters rock the boat and giant iceberg pieces poke out from the surface. In the second photo of the post, the Blue Bloods star offered a close-up of the ice shard. She captioned the photos, “On the rocks.”
Another one of her adventures in Iceland included hiking a volcano. Though it was, of course, inactive, the adventure still demonstrated the vast and diverse landscape that was Iceland. From waterfalls and Lupine fields to mountains and volcanoes, the young Blue Bloods actress seemed to want to experience all Iceland had to offer.
