Happy New Year 2 (Polar Bear Plunge Pictures)

After  the Midnight run and fireworks, we got home on New Years Eve at 2 am. I can’t even remember the last time I was up that late!!! It felt like it was 6 am (getting old over here!) and we were woken up by the sunniest possible day. Cold. It was about 30s, with feels like in the 20s. And yes, there’s people getting ready to take a dip in the ocean in Coney Island. gosh. I would never say never, but I really want to say it. Please let me!

Man, it was crowded!! The plunge was at 1 and we got there at around 12:30, it was a pretty sunny day but SO SO COLD with the wind by the ocean. Keep that in mind when you look at this pictures!!

And then we just headed indoors to do warm things and look at warm stuff and think of warm stuff. Seriously, that’s insane. Which means, we might do it next year.
