This morning the Jenkins fam joined the Swapps and 500 or so other of our closet friends in West Seattle for the Upteenth Annual Alki Polar Bear Plunge. This was my fifth straight APBP but this one came with a few firsts.
First, Reese and Finn took their first plunges. Finn went first with me then, after much cajoling, Charlotte and Reese joined George and me for a second dunk a few minutes after our first one.
This was also the first time I took multiple plunges. In addition to the aforementioned two I took a third plunge around noon when I ran into Johnny Smith, little bro’ of my old friend Gary. Johnny and I leaped off the stairs (see photos below).
I’ll say this: I hope my boat never goes down in Puget Sound.
