Who knew that a bunch of old ladies in bathing suits would generate so much interest? But generate we did. We've been featured in local newspapers, the Christian Science Monitor and Readers Digest, on local and Boston TV stations, CBS and NPR, and in multiple videos. This year we have dates with the Boston Globe, NBC Nightly News and AARP, among others. It seems in these times of bad news and discord, our story of courage, fun, and connection with nature and each other has struck a chord.

Here is a sampling of our stardom. We try not to let it get to our heads.
