Polar plunging into 2012 at Burien’s Three Tree Point

We sent photographer Jerry Gay to Burien’s Three Tree Point on New Year’s Day to document this year’s Polar Bear Plunge.

In the first photo, the kids look like they are having fun while the adults look a little more skeptical.

In the second photo, everybody else is heading back to shore but these girls are hanging on to each other for support as they are are determined to win the prize for staying in the water the longest.
