This New Year's Day, we finally did it. We took the Polar Bear Plunge into the Atlantic Ocean off of Coney Island to start off the new year! We were accompanied ,ofcourse, by 1500 other people all of whom seemed pretty happy to be alive. It was uplifting, adventurous and okay.... a little cold! My dear friend Gwen took this footage with a camera strapped to her head. Ed and I have been going to watch the plunge for a couple years just for the craziness of it alone. Being a participant this year made it tough to take any good photos so I thought I would share some holga shots from last year.
Back when the idea of jumping into freezing water on a cool winter's day was still only a whisper.
