After catching the sun rise, I headed out to Grouse Mountain to say hi to a few friends. I used to go to Grouse Mountain all the time during the summer to do Grouse Grinds, so I thought it would be nice to say hi. I was on a tight schedule though, because I was planning to do the Polar Bear Swim too.
I've debated with myself for a while on whether or not I should be doing the Polar Bear Swim. Even though the temperature isn't too cold outside, the water temperature is another story. At the same time, it was cloudy and abit on the rainy side.
When I got to English Bay, my debate about whether or not I should go in the water ended, there were so many people there! It was like a big party, and I guess my internal debate was over.
When everyone jumped in the water I went along too and I must say, the water was cold!! So was the sand the moment I took off my shoes! Never the less it was fun and a great way to start off the New Year!
