New Year’s Plunge on Tybee Island

Today I went with Judy, another volunteer, to Tybee where the annual plunge into the ocean was taking place, along with a “parade of goofs”.

Here are some Fish People, and Popeye the Sailor Man,:


And a couple of penguins and a mermaid:


The judges gave first prize to The Smurfs:


There were quite a few more who took part in the parade, but hundreds gathered for the plunge. Here they are waiting for the rope to be dropped, and then into the water:

I knew it would be windy and cold so I dressed warmly and stayed comfortable except for the rain. Now that I’m back home in front of the electric heater, the sun has come out.

  5. Which smurf were you, Gypsy? The plunge at home is called the Polar Bear Swim on New Years Day. No matter what they call it, they're crazy!
