Nothing like some downtime after being on the road. Beyonce shared even more personal family photos via Instagram on Thursday, July 3, of herself floating in the ocean and spending time with her baby girl Blue.

The "Drunk in Love" singer, 32, wore a sexy black bikini while taking a dip in crystal blue water. Giving a glimpse of her toned abs, she went makeup-free while displaying the Roc Nation sign with her arms. In a second picture, the star's 2-year-old daughter with Jay Z stood on a boat as she watched dolphins swim below.

"I'm always happy when I'm surrounded by water, I think I'm a mermaid or I was a mermaid," Beyonce said during her MTV documentary special Year of 4 in July 2011. "The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective…it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you've been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean."

One day earlier, the mother-daughter duo showed off their matching pink nail polish in an adorable snapshot. "Me and my Blue, and my Blue Blue, riding," Beyonce wrote.

Beyonce — who recently topped Forbes' most powerful celebrity list—is currently on a 16-city tour with Jay Z. The "XO" singer has been nothing but fashionable during her performances. On June 25, she took the stage in a black bodysuit with butt cutouts designed by Givenchy. She's also donned leotards and a black sequined Atelier Versace fishnet ensemble.

Rapper Jay Z, meanwhile, has been sticking mainly to black. During the 40-plus song set a night, he's worn a custom Rodarte "99 Problems" jersey and several pieces of jewelry.
