Polar Bears:  2013!


New Year’s Day – 2013, 16th St. Lifeguard Tower, Hermosa Beach, CA

I’ve been dying to try out some new activities since being back in California – here’s a new one for y’all!  Polar Bears, 9am, 16th St. Lifeguard Tower in Hermosa Beach, New Year’s Day – 2013!  On your right, we have Pastor Tim from Beach Cities Christian Fellowship, don’t remember, that’s Dennis in the middle, yours truly, and don’t remember (sorry).

Will try to get names filled in as I can.  Also there were the Swim Team (Varsity and J.V.) from South High School in Torrance, with their coach Sharon (Thompson?) and her husband, and several others, along with my friend Mary Ellen Koetsier-Farr from SCAQ.  Woo – was that water cold!

Some of us went in twice, this is the first group.  All the kids and their coach and most of us went in the 2nd time, and the water didn’t feel quite as cold.  It was enough to take the wind out of ya – that’s for sure!
