shiver me timbers

The locals are saying that the water is warm. But a cold front is coming in and it's rather cold. But that doesn't stop the die-hard wharf jumpers. Even if they get water in their ears and freeze.
One of the best things in the world is jumping off the wharf. It's a wonderful adrenaline rush. And there's nothing like it in the world. Jumping off the cliff in Costa Rica was different, and so is jumping off the high dive at the pool. But there's something magical about jumping off the wharf into the dark and seemingly endless abyss of dynamic ocean. It's almost like you are being enulfed by it, but then you come out victorious. It's so much fun, and it's even more fun because it's cold. If it was warm, it wouldn't seem as difficult to do it.
And we can't forget the colorful scene at the wharf. All of the interesting people that go down there and the special ways they express themselves verbally. Yeah . .

You can't get anything like that anywhere else, which makes it so special. The people, the adrenaline rush, the freezing waters - it's a package deal, and it's amazing. You can't help but feel so utterly enthused when jumping off the wharf. Even if it is cold.
