Miley Cyrus Is Jettin’, Y’all

Miley Cyrus could use a little rest and relaxation.

Aside from her myriad professional obligations, she’s also dealing with the legal pressures that have resulted from a certain unfortunate photo opportunity.

So it’s not surprising that the 16-year-old Hannah Montana star took advantage of the sun and surf on Wednesday while hanging out with the family on an island in the Bahamas. Check out Miley ripping up the waves on a jet-ski—not too bad, considering she’s usually not seen riding anything more powerful than a bicycle.

The well-deserved time-out occurred prior to Cyrus’ concert on Saturday at the Atlantis Resort and Casino, as part of the Atlantis Live! concert series. And Wednesday wasn’t just any day at the beach—it was also the birthday of Miley’s mom Tish.

There really are worse ways that one could spend one’s birthday.
