A springtime dip?

SOUTH KITSAP — A misguided attempt for a Sunday spring dip in Puget Sound?

Perhaps, but it wasn’t clear to South Kitsap Fire and Rescue members why a red vehicle was resting nearly submerged off the shore of Beach Drive near Olney Avenue. Two on-duty rescue swimmers entered the waters to search the vehicle, according to a Facebook post by SKFR March 24.
