It was a beautiful crisp, clear morning and temperatures just above freezing. Plenty of sunshine and a fresh dusting of snow on the mountains…just low enough to touch the highest point on Bowen Island. A large group that included all ages plunged into the water. I love to watch the kids…they are very excited about the prospect of swimming. Then there is this point once they are in the water when they realize, “Hey, this is really cold!”
After the plunge of excitement we took a nice stroll along the beach in Gibsons Landing. It’s a good start to the year when you can take a refreshing walk along the ocean. Thank you to those who organize the Polar Bear Swim…a festive and energetic way to start the year.
