This year, we visited Cold Storage Beach in Dennis, and hit it while the tide was still coming in, but while there was still plenty of beach to walk and explore. And Puppy had her New Years Romp.
The weather was gorgeous, unseasonably warm for a second New Year's Day in a row but not quite the t-shirt weather we had on January 1st of 2011. Puppy likes it colder anyway, and was exhausted by the end of the walk. She's turning 2 years old at the end of this month, so as far as she knows, this is the beach we visit EVERY New Year's Day. And maybe we will from now on. It's a great beach, and a great tradition.
Later that day, we went to a party with friends, where we ate barbeque and black-eyed peas .... apparently, it's a Southern tradition to eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day to bring good luck in the coming year.
(I liked the beach walk better. So did Puppy.)
What are some of your New Year's Day traditions?
