People of all ages took the traditional dip at M Street Beach Saturday morning to ring in the new year. While not an official L Street Brownies-sanctioned event this year (the bath house is still being renovated), people were encouraged to swim and record themselves. A very enthusiastic crowd gathered. To really pump up the fun, the Greater Boston Firefighters Pipes and Drums corp paraded to the beach from L Street Tavern. Happy New Year! (Photos by Ginger DeShaney)
