New Year's Day Polar Bear Plunge
Many Newporters (and visitors) rang in the New Year down at 1st Beach, watching the annual New Year's Day Polar Bear Plunge. One of the coolest (literally) Newport RI events, this annual swim by some brave souls benefits A Wish Come True. It's a great spectacle to watch for a great cause. If you missed it this year, make sure you check it out next year!

Latitude Yacht Brokerage
I met the owner of Latitude Yacht Brokerage, Ryan J. Miller, about a month ago while scanning some old photos for my "From the Vault" page at Kinkos in Middletown. He's a nice guy, who patiently waited while I hogged the scanner. Thanks again, Ryan!
