The Junior Lifeguards’ pier jump, a rite of passage in Newport for decades, was last week. One by one, youngsters (carefully supervised – don’t try this at home!) swallowed hard, took a deep breath, and stepped off into the thin air to splash down a couple of very long seconds later. Returning to shore, they knew they had conquered their fear to accomplish a goal.
Several parents were on hand, with their cameras, so here is an album of some of their photos.
