Grateful Boomers head to North Bank
Published 12:02 pm Thursday, December 14, 2023
This past week, the Grateful Boomers from Curdsville hiked on the North Bank trail that meanders along the James River in Richmond. They enjoyed the flora and fauna during their 7.1 mile urban hike that also included walking the foot bridge to Belle Island! A biting wind was blowing, but that didn’t deter them from enjoying the beautiful outdoors and each other’s company. Afterwards, they ate lunch at “Fresca” in The Fan. If you’re wondering who the Grateful Boomers are, they’re a group of friends from Buckingham County, all over the age of 60, who want to enrich their lives through both meaningful friendships and challenging outdoor adventures. They believe that aging gratefully with a high level of curiosity about everything, will create the best environment to remain mentally and physically active. Collectively, the group’s interests run from biking to hiking, kayaking and photography to reading, knitting, gardening and travel. They hope that by sharing their adventures, the group will inspire others to do the same.
