What we're about

If you are a Boomer, single or married, it is sometimes difficult to find others who want to get out and have some fun! Maybe your spouse or friends are couch potatoes. Maybe they have different interests, or they are otherwise busy. Come out with us. We are friendly and very welcoming! We love to get together and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us with 1 day or multiday adventures such as kayaking, biking, or hiking. How about scalloping, fishing, or just going for a walk on the beach? Let’s go to the theatre and the local festivals. Meet friends at our regular get together to Buddy up and share the cost of a room for an upcoming overnight adventure. Let’s share our unique life stories and enjoy this special time of our lives.

We welcome socially conscience and environmentally inspired Boomers who are interested in appreciating, enjoying, and preserving our valuable natural resources together in friendship.
