Happy Polar Bear Plunge Day!
I am kicking off the New Year by celebrating in a dramatic fashion! I didn’t have a lake to break through the ice on, but I do have a pool in the neighbor’s backyard! It has been rougly 40 degrees here in Sunny SoCal so I knew it would be chilly. I bravely dipped my toe in and almost chickened out since it is roughly 40 degrees here! Having a camera crew at the ready I found some false bravado. I counted down and jumped. I don’t think there’s a lot to get you ready for a dip in the chilly water but I was wishing that I had jumped a little closer to the stairs. What an invigorating way to start the year.
It’s probably a good thing that it wasn’t “Celebrate by Wearing a Matching Swimsuit Day” as I was not. I couldn’t find my black shorts and the sun was fading, which explains the blurry photos…but you get the idea.
