We got up this morning at 7am. Jesse took the boys out for their morning walk. As soon as they got back it started to rain. It rained steady until about noon.
From what we could tell yesterday when we drove by Graceland, there is a lot of standing outside waiting to enter the different places, therefore we didn’t want to go in the rain.
So we formed another plan. We decided to take a bus tour of Downtown Memphis. We went with Blues City Tours. For $24 per person. It was to start at 2:00 and was a 3 hour tour.
Showed us a few Victorian houses from the bus
Our final stop was the Peabody Hotel to see the ducks retire for the evening. They actually walk the red carpet at 5:00 pm to the elevator to go up to their suite for the evening. They come back down the next morning at 11am.
As you can see there are hundreds of people crowded around the area, so we couldn’t see anything. I excused myself all the way up to the fountain to get a picture then joined the rest of my bus tour.
The bus tour was okay, I wouldn’t recommend it, but it was something to do. The 4 other people on the tour with us were very nice people from Houston, TX.
We were dropped back at the terminal and went to Applebee’s for some dinner. At home the boys were glad to see us. We walked and fed them and relaxed in front of the TV for the evening.
Graceland tomorrow, I hope!
