Michele Drake is the Playboy Playmate for May 1979.
Michele Drake stands near the shore line of Venice Beach in California, her faded jeans rolled up to her knees, her long blonde hair rising gently with the breeze, her bright-red Hawaiian shirt fluttering against her body; she doesn’t seem to have anyting on underneath. Michele skims a stone off the crest of a wave and, eyes gilttering with the reflection of the warm California sun, clears a strand of hair from her face. “The beach is the best place for me to think,” she says, skimming another pebble. The lone surfer, lying on his board some distance from the shore, is waiting for a big one. Michele counts the waves to herself. “Do you know I’m a direct descendant of Sir Francis Drake?” she says, stuffing her hands into her jeans pockets. “Once, when I was in Mexico, I was at a certain beach and I got this very strange feeling about the place — almost mystical. Later, someone told me that Sir Francis Drake had landed there. Maybe that’s why I felt so good about that spot.” Wistfully, she gazes at the water. Then suddenly, she sheds her jeans and shirt, revealing a tiny black bikini underneath. Without a word, she runs into the surf. Thigh-deep in salt water, she turns to wave, her tanned body glistening in the spray. Yes, indeed, the Beach Boys were right. See more inside Playboy!
