    Bikini Beach..Brooklyn style!

    I was at Coney Island yesterday and it was a balmyish 60 degrees and some of the Polar Bear girls who take the weekly Sunday afternoon plunge into the icy cold Atlantic had their bikinis on.
    No, this isn't a Victoria's Secret or Sports Illustrated photo shoot but I thought these girls were pretty cute.
    Before the bears go into the ocean there is a pep talk like all athletes have to motivate the spirit. I talked to some of the girls and another reason to take the daring plunge is to raise body awareness and self esteem. Don't be ashamed of your great body no matter how it looks, or if it doesn't meet a certain popular standard. I like that. Go girls!
    Now, as a turn around, we are in the midst of another snow storm in New York. We already got about 6 inches of heavy crunchy icy snow mix and it is still coming down. This is not fun, but if it were Sunday the Polar Bears would have gone in, just as well.
