The Polar Bear Club Braves the Cold of Long Island Sound
On the first day of 2006, Sunday, Jan. 1, I was invited to the 7th annual polar bear club swim. It was 30 degrees with no wind and no sun and the water was like glass. There was a Christmas tree standing tall in the sand and a bonfire neatly arranged not far away. It took place on Long Island Sound, at the end of Valley and Shorewood Roads in Bayville.
