Whatever happened to “Bo Derek”?

From that first time we all saw the corn-rowed “10” jogging on the beach at Las Hadas back in 1979 to today…. the iconic Bo Derek has “held up” very well for 59 (unlike many “known for her beauty” beauties).   Take a few minutes and get re-acquianted with Bo Derek.    Betcha didn’t know that she has “swam the Hellespont”!

Did I ever tell you about the six months I lived at Las Hadas in Manzanillo, Mexico back in 1982?  A story for another day.   Meet Bo Derek 2015.

Longines Ladies Award 2014

I was honored and excited to be invited to the Longines Ladies Award in the Grand Stables of the Chantilly Chateau.  It was a wonderful event honoring the contributions of women to the world of equestrian sport.  Thanks Longines and thank you to all my fellow honorees for their commitment to an amazing sport and the welfare of its athletes.

Swimming the legendary Hellespont

Braved rough waters for my first open water swim at the Hellespont in Turkey.  I was inspired to enter after reading about Lord Byron doing the same swim.  I made it!

John Derek was to all appearances an extremely fortunate man. Ursula Andress to Linda Evans to Bo Derek
I think Artie Shaw might be his closest competitor.
