before leaving for the north, we had to deliver a trailer outside of memphis, tennessee.
neither of us had ever been after living most of our lives just a few hours away. besides the blues
and barbecue, there's nothing else that appeals to me. luckily, good tunes and food is all this girl needs.
we packed up and hit the road, driving across the entire state and arriving in memphis around bed time.
after a good night's rest, a breakfast buffet and a stormy friday morning, we made the delivery with time to spare.
we decided to check out historic beale street. thankfully, it was early and the streets were bare. we wandered throughout
a. schwab for almost an hour. the store is 137 years old! and they have every thing you can imagine there. i also loved finding
a record shop. we grabbed an early lunch on beale before driving down to the riverfront. the mighty stinky mississippi. the optimist
in me tried to give this town a fair chance, but the morning storms left dreadful humidity and a lingering stench.
memphis, we will try this again sometime...
