Those aren’t bears! Oh, yes… this is the New Year’s Polar Bear Plunge and these intrepid swimmers are now Polar Bears. The plunge is at noon on Marrowstone Island. A cannon is fired and people jump off the dock and into the water, cold Salish Sound water, in the low fiftys. Brrrr. The ambulance crew stands by and family and friends to witness this transformation into bears for the day.
This makes me think of my daughter in daycare. She and one of the daycare personnel developed an art relationship. My daughter brought home pages with lines of color painted, parallel lines, color spectrums. I still have one on the wall at home.
