Brave souls turned out New Year's Day for the 18th Annual Exercise Like the Eskimos, a polar plunge into the Atlantic Ocean to celebrate the arrival of 2014.

Emma Leppert and Matt Koskanen run into the icy water.
Barbara Sear and her three dachshunds wait for the plunge.
Charlie Saah and his dog, Rico Suave, both took the plunge. “Rico goes where I go," said Saah.
This group took the plunge four times. Shown (l-r) are Unagh Frank, Leslie Boyer, Rachael Lee, David Frank, Megan Hart and Ronan Frank.
This group with (l-r) Gary Brock, Stan Segawa, Pam Segawa, Julie Brock, Paul Hufstein, Glenn Tom and Chris Scott-Spezak came from Georgia, North Carolina, Maryland and New Jersey for a family plunge.
