Except for an off-shore harbor seal, he was the lone swimmer in the water today. I spotted him after I got out and was drip-drying on a sandy towel in the late afternoon sun. The Edmonds Temperature Taker Dude has some well-defined ego strength, and, like me, a passion for cold water plunges.
After work today, I skeedaddled home and headed straight for the beach in Edmonds where I took to the water with nary a care. Whoa doggies! We're talking c o l d, folks! Though I didn't ask him what the water temperature was, I checked the marine forecast website when I was sufficiently defrosted in the comfort of my own home.
Ready? A refreshing 55 degrees.
Life is good!
