Barb took us on a tour of Memphis the next day. We saw Tom Lee Park, right on the mighty Mississippi, we wandered on Beale Street and ate at Corky's BBQ. We saw the outside of the Pink Palace Museum, toured the Victorian Village, and the Mud Island homes. It was great. Barb went home to KC the next day, so we were on our own from there.

We visited the Memphis Zoo and had a great time. A lot of the warm-weather animals were already housed for the winter, but the giraffes were out and having a gallop.
The next day we were picked up in the bus for the Memphis Best Tours. We saw St. Jude Children's hospital, The Peabody Hotel (and the ducks), drove by Sun Studio and the Pyramid (which is to become a Bass Pro Shop). We ate lunch at the Rum Boogie Cafe on Beale Street. Then we spent some time at Graceland and saw all things Elvis! Cathy purchased a pair of Elvis socks with rhinestones! Steve liked the cars best.

Steve took another day to visit Barb's friend Dan, and his home full of Coca Cola memorabilia. All in all, a great time here!
