Yesterday was the Big Day. The day I got to follow through on my crazi-plunge!
Yes, I went into the Atlantic Ocean in FEBRUARY! And it was a blast!
|There's about 10 minutes before they allow us to go in. Time to strip!|
On the beach it was 35 degrees with a little breeze blowing. After I stripped, I hid behind AZ for protection.
|Me and Neicy Before the Plunge|
The Sand was COLD and icy on the bare toes. And then they blew the whistle!
|Woo ho! Get me OUTTA HERE!|
The water was 38 degrees. Warmer than the air but still numbing. If you enlarge the picture above, you will see the safety divers. I went out and said "hi" to him. Then a wave came and washed over "The Girls". brrrrrrr
|Legs? Who needs them! Wait... are they still there?|
AZ was waiting at the waters edge with my towel! HEAVEN!
Once again, it was a LOAD of fun! Around 9 pm last night I told AZ I was finally warm again.
There were over 3,500
nuts wonderful people on the beach with me and Neicy yesterday and together we raised over $650,000 for Special Olympics DE. Imagine the wonderful things they can do for all the special kids in DE! It warms my heart to imagine it!
