Artic Plunge

Artic Plunge

Super Bowl Sunday . It isn't all about Football.
Today Mrs. Visocchi  and I  participated in the 12th Annual Artic Plunge for Special Olympics.
It was a balmy 44 degrees as we passed the Amesbury Tubing Park on the way to Hampton Beach.
We were ready and between the two of us raised over $1000.00 for this great charity.
We took the plunge around noon time with 717 other  crazy people  . The water temperature was not much warmer then the air at 39 degrees.
Below are a few pictures of our epic journey into the Atlantic. We had a great time and will be continuing this for years to come.
