Well, we did it! Jakes, Neicy and I took the Plunge into the COLD Atlantic Ocean again. As usual, it was great fun and Neicy and I went in 3 times each. We always have to go in for the intial plunge but since there are SO many people running in and out of the ocean at the same time, its impossible for our friends to get pictures of us in the water. So we go back and pose for the pictures.
It was actually VERY warm on the beach, 49 degrees and SUNNY! We hung out on the beach for quite a while waiting for the official call to swim.
The we went in. HOLY CRAP Was it COLD! I went in about to my waist and before I got past my ankles my feet were numb. This was my second time going in. I made Neicy go with me so we could get pictures.
Jakes was probably the smartest one of us all, he only got his feet wet and decided that was enough. :) Gotta love the smart ones.

They estimate that there were over 20,000 people in Rebohoth this weekend for the events. I am sure they raised major money to support the Special Olympics of Delaware. And Neicy, Jakes and I will go back next year for another dip in the freezing Atlantic!
