It’s been a long time since I’ve been to see the ocean in the dead of winter but how could I resist the 13th annual Polar Bear Plunge in Sea Isle City New Jersey. The Northeast has been in a fridgid air mass for a few weeks now and the back bays were frozen but that didn’t stop several hundred from decending on this small coastal town for a dip in the drink. And what a surprise to hear just 4 members of Fralinger Stringband parade while the main group was in Hong Kong performing for the Chinese New Year that same day.

    Great video of this latest event of party animals ! I wish I could have been there but I to install a porcelain pooper catcher at inside water closet. It beats steam’in one in a hole in the back yard !!!

    Getting back to your latest quest, “awesome”, is the only way to describe the event.

    One question though ? I didn’t know MD. Shrek had a NJ. brother!

    Keep em coming !

    That was a great video…I have always heard about such an event but never thought it would be such a good time…those folks certainly were living it up.
