The morning started out quite and beautiful... one lonely little tutu
a few kids tossing footballs, a few kites
a man in mix matched clothes and a lampshade on his head
and this sweet family. The little girls were telling daddy how to pose while mom giggled and took pictures, and of course daddy had to show off for all of his girls..
Mr Woopie cushion and his friend
more tutu's arrived as well as Mr. Cheesehead, polar bear family & purple hair man . A lady with 45's ( records for those to young to know what I'm talking about ) attached to her and Guinness World Record buttons.. I don't know if she was an official from Guinness or just playing up the world record attempt.
about 11:45 people started being counted, now I have to say at 11:00 I truly did not think there was enough people to break the original record of like 546 people but all of a sudden there was people everywhere..
including yellow man, Alice and wonderland characters, another polar bear and a group we never did figure out what they were with white tails and head bands ?
The pier was packed, the crosswalk was packed and the part of the beach that was roped off to hold those that were participating in the record attempted was packed..
isn't she adorable
Swim caps everywhere... turns out we not only broke the old record we crushed it.. Over 2000 caps were handed out.. For 10 minutes over 2000 people wearing swimming caps laughed, clapped and cheered and they now get to say they helped break a Guinness World Record as the most people gathered together wearing swimming caps ..lol
and as the trumpet blew 12 o'clock people with and without caps ran, jumped or tip toed into the Atlantic... love the couple hugging she looks so happy..
as some covered up and headed home
others continued to play in the surf.. The lady on the left in the blue is very pleased with herself. You go you brave, brave lady..
there was dancing
and lots and lots of happy people everywhere
and then there was those of us that choose to just stand back and enjoy watching.. Over 4000 people showed up for the plunge it just keeps getting bigger and bigger.. if you would like to see a little video of the event you can check it out here on Mermaid Cottages blog it really shows just how many people there was.. It was a fun day we rode the bike down and enjoyed all the sunshine...
