Family Holds Inaugural Polar Bear Plunge at Shinnecock Inlet

Say your family can’t all be in one place on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Would you plan to get together another night for dinner? Would you put on bathing suits and all head to the beach to jump in the frigid ocean?

If you picked the latter, you must be related to Lynda Armstrong, because that is just what her family did on December 28.

“We weren’t able to spend Christmas together so we got together on Saturday and made a splash at Shinnecock Inlet,” explained Jennifer Maguire Coughlin.

2013 was their inaugural Family Polar Bear Plunge. Will they do it again? We’ll check in next December.
