A yearly tradition on January 1st in North Beach, Maryland is the Polar Bear Swim. People put on their bathing suits and tread into the Chesapeake Bay (which is only about 40 degrees) and swim to the pilings and back.
This is the 2nd year I've been and it's fun to watch. There are some brave souls out there. I am not one of them.
My New Year's Eve was quiet. Full of contemplation about what this new year brings. Definitely going to work on cultivating some new friendships.
Going to start taking down the Christmas tree and decorations tomorrow.
Whatever your traditions are for the New Year, enjoy.
