This is the third year that Darling Daughter has done the polar bear plunge. Personally, I think it is insane, however cool.
The air temperature was 59 and the water was 48. A rain squall hit about 20 minutes before the plunge was scheduled, so it felt much colder. Observers and participants were both soaked.
My daughter, of course, was the last one out.
Here are the pics. The quality is poor because of the rain.
Preparing to go in. My daughter is the one on the right, the other is her sister (who doesn't live with us).
In the cold!
After, there were interviewed by the local paper.
All the craziness aside, I do think it's fairly cool for her to do the polar bear plunge every year. I'm quite proud of her.
