IF-"Resolve"



The polar bears marched into the frigid waters of the Atlantic with resolve, ignoring goose bumps and numbness.
While we stood there bundled up, and watched with awe, as our wet noses froze in the blistering cold.

Just a recap of my first day in 2009. Drawing from memory.

That's a funny, lively scene. Nice color. There is no way I'd get in that water.

You've really captured the crowd and the frozen jittery-ness of the event. I've watched this on TV from the comfort of Central California and can only shake my head at the resolve such an activity must take.
