Former Packed to the Rafters co-stars and long-time pals Jessica Marais and Hugh Sheridan have shared a sweet insight into their day out together.
The picture comes after a turbulent month for Jess, who was hospitalised earlier in May in a "distressed state".
But it seems Hugh has been the support blanket that the 35-year-old needed, with the actress looking happier than ever in the selfie posted to Instagram on Wednesday evening.
As the country begins to reopen after lockdown, it looks like Jess has been getting out and about a little more with her former co-star, who has proven to be the ultimate support person.
In the picture, posted by Hugh, Jess is seen smiling widely into the camera alongside Hugh and another friend, Ann Fay.
The trio looked happy and excited to be together under blue skies.
Jess, who is mum to daughter Scout, warmed up with a multi-coloured scarf, while High went bright and bold with a yellow jumper and mustard coloured hat.
"Best day of my life with my dearest friends," Hugh captioned the pic.

Fans were thrilled to see the actors united, with many jumping to the comments section to share their thoughts on the on-screen brother and sister duo hanging out.
"Aw what a threesome ! Big hugs ! Love you all !! Xx," wrote one.
Another said: "Ben and Rach reunited seriously miss their bond and you two on screen."
And another fan was simply taken by Jess' colourful accessory: "The hand knitted scarf... sooo good."
We agree with all of the above!

This isn't the first time the pair have been pictured together this month following Jess' hospitalisation.
On May 4, just days after the actress was admitted to hospital, Hugh shared a number of photos showing them hanging out, telling fans they enjoyed a mediation session together that day after he also spent time with fellow Aussie actress, Rebel Wilson.
"Counting my blessings having spent the day with two of my best friends. Two very strong, talented and brave Australian women. First was a step challenge with Rebs at the opera house :) and then meditation and a hug with my earth angel Jessie x I love you both beyond words," he wrote.

Last week, Hugh and Jess were also spotted doing a wholesome coastal walk together near Sydney's Bondi Beach.
In pictured obtained by the Daily Mail, Jess looked happy and healthy as she and Hugh smiled and chatted together while doing the iconic Bondi to Bronte walk.

Hugh and Jess go way back when they originally played on-screen siblings in Packed To The Rafters.
Things were certainly different in 2008, but it seems for these two, some things never change at all.
Having been open about her experience with mental health in the past, Jess told The Australian Women's Weekly in 2014 about her bipolar disorder diagnosis.
"I have developed ways to talk myself down from any ledges I find myself on," she explained.
It's positive to see Jess surrounded by her nearest and dearest during what is undoubtedly a testing time.
