Not quite the Polar Bear Plunge
I think everyone in Ghana was at Labadi beach yesterday. There had to have been a thousand people, all bobbing in the waves as one solid mass. This picture doesn't capture it all. I just watched, but didn't join them. I preferred the quieter more pristine end of the beach to swim, but was soon called out by the lifeguard and told to go join the swarm he was guarding. So back the lounge chair I went and in went my earbuds--tanning at the beach on New Years Eve, rather than braving the arctic ice. Props to all those that did, though.
