In accordance with one of the New Years many time honored traditions, hundreds gathered at Narragansett Beach the morning of Jan. 1, 2012 to take a dive into the bay.
The unseasonably warm day, with air temperatures in the 50s and water temperatures in the 40s, made for the perfect day to take a dip. Diehard plungers came dressed in their New Years best, with props, hats and even themed bathrobes in honor of the occasion.
At the strike of noon the dash into the water began, and while it was over shortly thereafter for some, a few hearty New Englanders stuck it out long enough to thoroughly enjoy their swim.
This annual event is hosted by the Narragansett Lions Club, and proceeds go to benefit the Jonnycake Center.
