Polar Bear, January 1, 2011
Chunks of ice had formed on the shoreline of North Avenue beach.
I don't recommend walking on this barefoot.
27 degrees, but otherwise pretty mild.

This guy was pretty festive.
I couldn't help but notice how many people around me were in warm coats.
The icy water awaits my hesitant stare.
A second dip has become customary. Hey, as long as you're already in the water...
I find my trophy.
And raise it in triumph.
I think my left eye was frozen shut.
A frozen ice barrier once again impedes an easy exit onto the shoreline.
My hair is frozen stiff!
Cozy socks. Another year in the books.
