Among many curious characteristics that distinguish the dazzling Amazon who stole my heart 22 years ago, Susan actually enjoys cold water. Swimming in cold water! She claims that it is Scandinavian heritage (on her maternal side). And so it should come as no surprise that a 35° polar plunge in Lake Champlain is my bride’s idea of a good way to start the day.
Needless to say, we don’t always see eye-to-eye. But… happy wife, happy life! (And when it comes to polar, plunging in almost frozen water, Carley is as enthusiastic as Susan.)
If you’d like to relive the peculiar pleasure that is intentionally plunging your corporal self into lake water just barely higher than the freezing point, then this next little mashup is for you. Enjoy.
