My weekend at Oak Grove was billed as a "woman's retreat". And it was. I met some very nice people and will go back as often as I can. I came away less stressed and ready to tackle my busy life. Pickett, the owner, started me out with some slow stretches and a Reiki session. The next day after breakfast, I ventured out with a packed lunch of a rice salad, ice tea, fruit and cookies. That evening, I dined at a local restaurant and was treated like a queen! And the food was fantastic. Sunday, after breakfast Pickett drove me to another B and B, and I met Linda. Linda gave me a full body massage and ministered to me at the same time. It was a very satisfying experience. This was the first time I was able to connect with the owner as a friend. I will go back!
