Lovely Scribbles

The Polar Bear Plunge

This past Saturday I photographed the Polar Bear Plunge, a fundraiser for Special Olympics Minnesota. Having never been to a plunge before, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. It was pure craziness! Not only were the participants brave enough to plunge into the water on a 21 degree day, but they did so in hilarious costumes. The crowds of spectators were treated to not only jumps, but dives, cannonballs and belly flops. I couldn't believe their enthusiasm for jumping into freezing cold water!

Alaska in January

I'm vacationing in Alaska for a few days; enjoying the beautiful scenery and fun times with my brother and sister-in-law.  Here are a few photos from my trip.
