A celebration of shrinkage

San Francisco Polar Bear Swim, New Year’s Day, 2017

I thought I was going to miss my annual new year’s day polar bear plunge photoshoot which I have done for about 6 years in Chicago. But I learned that San Francisco has its own polar bear swim on the Pacific Ocean, so I went online, and voila. Found out that it was in Ocean Beach at noon, New Year’s Day. So I went.

It wasn’t as cold as the Chicago one, I am sure, but it was windy and the the surf was incredible. There were a few people who plunged naked … this is San Francisco after all.
