Tallahassee Hospitality

The group shotTuesday, Dec.29, we pulled up to the Hicks and were warmly greeted and invited on a hike around their property which felt good after the 8 hour trip from Sanibel. Out by the pond we ate oranges fresh off the tree. Before this trip I’d never even seen oranges on a tree! It wasn’t long before Mr. Hicks fired up the four    wheelers and we started an exciting ride through the woods. This was also a first for several of us and we were thrilled. "Pile on everyone!"Yeehaw!






That evening we toured their remodeled farm house, played Dutch blitz, bowled in the living room and ate lots and lots of ice cream! Ready to rideHang on!

The next morning delicious aromas of freshly baked cinnamon rolls filled the air. They were so good and many of us lost count of how many we ate!Strike!!!! Before packing up we enjoyed watching Picture Proverbs that brought   the wisdom of Solomon to life. After our group picture, we were off. I look back and would say that the highlight of this visit was the meaningful, uplifting conversation that Gathered for family devotionswere a tremendous reminder that our God is trustworthy and we can depend on him. The  oneness of Christian fellowship has been such an encouragement on this incredible vacation!"What are you doing up there?"Jordin, Esther and SusannaThe beautiful entry way

    Thank you Hicks family! God blessed our whole visit. Oranges off the tree was a delicious experience. You place would be a nice spot to visit in the warmer months too: to see that swamp come to life on a summer morning, or get into some mud with the 4-wheelers! 🙂

    Fresh oranges right off trees? Sounds delightful!
    The picture of the entry way looks like it could be a picture from Pilgrim’s Progress. Maybe one of the places of refuge for traveling pilgrims.
