It's known as the sunshine state.

And as these pictures show, Courteney Cox didn't waste a minute before stripping off to catch some rays in Miami Beach, Florida, on Sunday.

The Cougar Town star, 48, pored her curves into a revealing purple bikini as she sunned herself on her ocean-side balcony ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday.

At one point she bent down and almost toppled out of her triangle-shaped bikini top, which left little to the imagination.

In June this year, following a two-year separation, Courtney's husband David Arquette filed for divorce. Perhaps that explains why the former Friends star looked deep in thought as the ocean lapped behind her

Earlier in the day the actress had hit the beach with her sister and Coco. That time she chose to cover up in black leggings and a loose top.

The trio were then forced to beat a hasty retreat after an unexpected cloudburst of rain soaked them right through.

She had jetted into the popular
holiday destination with her eight-year-old daughter Coco on Sunday. The
pair had been spotted at the airport in LA clutching an array of
stylish accessories.

While her mother carried one but very
tasteful shoulder bag, Coco went all out, wheeling a Louis Vuitton
carry-on with one little hand and balancing a pink and zebra-striped on
her other arm.

The former Friends star was
comfortably chic in black blouse, V-necked jumper, skinny trousers and
flat-heeled black leather boots.

Her dark hair was dressed loose and her blue eyes sparkled behind black-framed spectacles.

Courteney's precious daughter, meanwhile, exhibited some of her father David's flair for fashion.

In
addition to the choice brightly coloured travel bags, Coco wore a
stylish purple and black knit dress over black leggings and purple suede
boots with sheep's wool lining.

Courteney approves of letting her daughter do her own thing and in fact encourages it.

The pair had a ball during the Halloween festivities, with each going for temporary airbrush tattoos at one seasonal bash.

Earlier this week, Courteney got in some 'me' time too, by joining her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt for lunch.

Although
Courteney has long denied there's anything romantic between them, they
certainly seemed relaxed and in a good mood while leaving the Los
Angeles restaurant.
