Memphis Mojo Tour and Rain

Since it was so hot and humid on Wednesday it was the perfect day for a bus tour through Memphis.  We chose Backbeat's Memphis Mojo Tour which featured Beale Street, Sun Studio, Overton Park, Peabody Hotel, Stax Studio, Lorraine Motel, and Elvis, BB King & Johnny Cash locales.   

Once we purchased our tickets we needed to grab a quick lunch. The closest place was King Jerry Lawler's Hall of Fame Bar & Grill on Beale Street. For those wrestling fans out there, I discerned he was a big deal in the wrestling world. I got crawfish chowder! We were delighted they had live music!

It started raining during the bus tour and by the time it was over it was a heavy rain along with thunder. We had planned at least one other activity for today but we just got too wet. Pippin and I huddled under a tree until Steve could go fetch the car. On the drive back to Hernando Point it was a torrential thunder storm, so heavy that we missed our exit and didn't even realize it until we had gone about 15 miles. Needless to say, it was a long damp ride back to our rig!

Tomorrow (Thursday) we will say goodbye to our campground on Lake Arkabutla in Hernando, MS and head for home. We didn't do everything we could have done in Memphis, but we saw just enough.
