Polar Bear Dip at the Flora-Bama

OHmygosh – we did the *most* fun thing yesterday! Every year, the Flora-Bama (which is a beloved beach bar right on the Alabama-Florida line) hosts a “Polar Bear Dip” where several hundred people get into their bathing suits (or costumes!) and run all together into the Gulf at noon on New Year’s day! Guess who was one of them!?

He’s the one below with his arms in the air:

Okay, the water wasn’t really *that* cold (61*), but it was soooo much fun!

Once everybody starts coming back out of the water, we all went back up to the Flora-Bama:

…where they served everyone that participated a free beer plus a plate of New Year food:

I think Av plans on making this an annual tradition! Fun!
