Swimmers hit the water at Gabriola Sands Provincial Park (Twin Beaches) on January 1st for the annual Polar Bear Swim. This year’s swim was notable for being during a remarkably high tide - as well as being only a few kilometers from the Entrance Island lighthouse, the warmest place in Canada on January 1, 2020.
