PHOTOS: Locals Celebrate The New Year By Flirting With Hypothermia
It’s the first of January and you know what that means… the annual Polar Bear Plunge at Three Tree Point!
Once again the weather cooperated and a great crowd of locals showed up to plunge themselves into the cold Puget Sound water.
We counted at least 38 participants before we lost track, so we’re sure the actual number is higher.
Our own Bart Bryan once again mustered the courage to participate. You might remember that he took home the “Three Tree Point Polar Bear Plunge” trophy last year.
This year Bart passed the trophy on to young Isaac Chrisman, visiting from Idaho with family here in town.
We covered the event from multiple angles with video cameras in the water and on the shore. We’ll have the video ready to post a little later.
In the mean time, here’s a gallery of photos by BTB photog Michael Brunk. You can click individual thumbnails to view the full sized photo.
