    Default 2011 Polar Bear Dip - Herring Cove, Nova Scotia

    Cool action captures Iggy. Love the expressions on the guys face in the red & white shorts.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    Yeah, I didn't even have a chance to read past the title as I was just heading out the door. Can definitely tell who it is in that first pic., now that I look at it closer.
