Did you jump in the lake?

I met Sten Carlstrom last week at Matthews Beach Park, where hundreds welcomed the year on Saturday jumping into Lake Washington. He said he was planning to take the swim too.
I couldn’t be there to sketch the event so I thought I’d share some links:
Chris Hunt’s photo blog, which I just stumbled upon doing a Google search, has some really great shots.
The Times produced a web gallery with images of other polar bear swims in Seattle and elsewhere.
Happy New Year!
