Finally.....I can cross #7 off my life's "to do" list!
air temperature: +1.3C
water temperature: +0.6C
I thought I was past the age where testosterone clouded my better judgement and I'm not sure how I got talked into this but it really wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. At least our little polar bear dip gave the small crowd of kids and recently-arrived tourists something to talk about.
Nine of us braved the waters of the bay for a few seconds of insanity - including 4 fellow staff members. Actually, I found it pleasantly warm once I ran back to the shore. I just wish I had shucked my snow pants before rushing in. At any rate, I do get a t-shirt out of the whole deal.
