Polar Dogs

So we arrived a bit too late to the Coney Island Polar Bear Club’s annual New Year’s Swim to actually to participate in the ritual plunge. But we did get inspired watching these dogs kick off the year, charging full force forward with what appears to be the right set of priorities: friendship and joy.

  1. I’m sorry I missed you! I got there at 1:05 and people were already heading out, but I dashed into the ocean anyway.

  2. i’m sorry too… we got there close to 1:30 and i spent my potentially swimmable window scoping the scene for familiar faces. Then they closed it off. I missed jumping in 5 times with you:-)
    But these dogs made me happy.

  3. wow beautiful photo.
