Polar Bear Swim, Noon Jan 1st 2011, Matthews Beach, Seattle WA
Our family has participated in this crazy tradition since 2006. The best part is the glory AND the polar bear patch you receive after you accomplish this feat of toughness and insanity.
This year I opted to film it, as I am recovering from a bout of pneumonia.. I did feel like I missed a special ritual of cleansing. If you are ever in Seattle for New Years Day, come down at noon for a dip or at least a viewing of the spectacle.--Anne
