West Seattle scene: A New Year’s Eve-Eve chiller

Thanks to Eric Shalit of Box Turtle Design for sharing this sight from Alki (where the latest water-temperature reading is a non-balmy 48 degrees). Gives us an excuse, meantime, to note that two “polar bear swims” are on the calendar for the New Year – 10 am Friday (1/1/10) on Alki, across from Duke’s, is the annual-albeit-informal swim, and this year, Special Olympics of Washington has the Polar Plunge fundraiser at 11 am Sunday 1/24/10, also on Alki – go here to register.
