Washington Cold Waves

January 18, 2011

From Susan Snyder:
“It was taken at Birch Bay in Birch Bay, Washington. It was a spring day and my son wanted to go in the cold water. We weren’t really prepared for swimming, but since he loves going in the water so much, I let him have fun.”

Green Lake Bath House Theatre | Seattle

Jump into the lake with a poem & a bikini. Don’t worry, your POETRY will PROTECT you. Yet again, the poets show Seattle what it takes to be one. This is year #2. Last year we made headline news & had a ton of fun. Join us this year?

CALLING ALL ARTISTS, poets, Alaska-natives and crazies. Looking for 50 hardy individuals to jump into Green Lake this December. It’s simple. Write a poem, put it on a bikini, put your bikini on & come to Green Lake at NOON on Saturday 12 December. We’ll be working up our courage behind the Bath House. Then, at 12:30pm, we’ll drop our fuzzy layers, line up on the water’s edge, read our poems to the massed and staring crowds and plunge on in! This is a quick event. If you’re late, you’ll miss it. Plan to be parked and ready to go at noon.

Even if you’re not willing to freeze your pants off, this is a spectacle worth attending. Come enjoy the poetry, sip some cocoa, have a laugh. The POETRY POLAR BEAR swim is the same day as the Pathway of Lights. Go Green Lake!

Deceptively attracting!
