Genevieve Morton first appeared in the SI Swimsuit Issue in 2010, when she posed for Walter Chin in Palm Springs, Calif. The South African model would go on to work with the brand for a total of six consecutive years through ’15. Her sophomore feature with the magazine found her in Fiji, where she worked with visual artist Walter Iooss Jr.

On Friday, the 36-year-old model shared a duo of throwback images on Instagram, the second of which is a snapshot from her aforementioned SI Swimsuit feature in Fiji.

“Dreaming of that @turtlefiji life 🥰,” Morton wrote in her caption.

The first photo captured Morton out on the water in a small boat with “Turtle Island” written on its side. She tagged photographer Troy Robertson and Turtle Island Fiji, a local beach resort. The next image showed Morton sprawled out in the sand, wearing the very same red, yellow, blue and purple colorful bikini she wore on location with the magazine in 2011. Her blonde locks were slicked back away from her face, and she accessorized with an arm full of beaded bracelets.

“Gorgeous location,” one of Morton’s 397,000 IG followers remarked.

“Fabulous photos,” someone else noted.

“You’re a dream😉❤️,” another fan wrote.
