A DAY IN DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS...

We took a little road trip last week since the Hubs had a meeting in Memphis.  

Felt like we stepped back in time on Main Street in Little Rock, Arkansas, where we are lunch at a restaurant there.

In Memphis, we had a great view of the Mississippi River from our hotel window!

 I was on my own for the day, and didn't want to drive in unfamiliar territory, so I just walked.  I went to the Cotton Museum...
 took weird selfies in the Belz Museum of Asiatic and Judiaic Art...

saw a carriage made of Jade...

 and I walked down Beale St. - famous for the birth of the Blues! 

I also made a new friend.  Rodney walked with me about 5 blocks.  We had a good visit that concluded with a request for some lunch money.

After the Hubs was out, we ate some good dinner and explored Bass Pro Shop in the big pyramid downtown.  FUN FACT:  If you like elevators you'll be excited to know this is the tallest freestanding elevator in the United States!
  


 It was fast but fun and we concluded it by eating breakfast with our nephew and his wife at a local breakfast hotspot, Brother Juniper's.  

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes!  

Needless to say we didn't stop to eat for the whole way home...
