The Historic Marker sign for Elvis in front of Graceland.

Today was our day in Memphis, and we ended up doing even more than first planned. Not so much that it was really noticeable but it gave our mileage a boost. I didn’t tell you about an adventure we had a few days back but that time we made a wrong turn and ended up going more or less around in circles a few times. Today we got into Memphis and drove by Graceland and got a few pictures then drove downtown to get some pictures of Beale Street, where all the Jazz and Blues are played.

Then we got the idea that we could get a picture of the Mississippi sign we had missed on our trip through after leaving New Orleans. That time it was way too late after dark to even see it when we went by.  So off we went south to get our picture.  We were on a freeway and watched the exit numbers get down to 3, then 2, then 1 and change over to the high numbers of Mississippi, but still no sign.  We drove couple of miles and saw a sign that said "Welcome Center 12 miles".  We ended up driving there and getting a picture at the sign there.  Then we had to drive back up the twenty miles.  All that for one picture.

Hope you enjoyed Beale St. I always enjoy taking friends down there and stopping in on the piano bars, or hanging out listening to some of the live music.
