Polar Bear Plunge!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! Remember Y2K? Twelve years ago today my darling James was born two weeks late, after 30 hours of labor, at 4:00am on the millenium. The hospital staff were on edge, paranoid, and wanting to be home with their families. It was scary and strange, but that's a whole other story...

With all that Y2K drama far behind us, New Years Day is now just a fun, birthday for our family. To celebrate his very special day, James has done the Polar Bear Plunge in Cayucos every year for the past seven years- and this one was the best yet! My dad guessed the turn-out was around 2000 people! SO. CRAZY. We had a blast. Check out some of these costumes!

Have you done the dip? Would you?! I always stand on the beach with towels and bottles of hot water, but I kind of secretly want to jump off the pier. Unfortunately the jet-ski police swiftly scoop you up and arrest you for that though... soooo I guess I'll never be able to do the plunge. *shucks*
