Road Trip, Day Two
We ran into a spot of weather about 50 miles west of Little Rock, and were stuck with it most of the day. I thought about killing the day in Arkansas, but, due to various sports allegiances, Brendan appears to be allergic to Arkansas, so we pressed on.
To Graceland! Graceland was not a scheduled stop, until yesterday, when we saw a billboard. We really enjoyed the tour, and I bought a picture book of Elvis's 1968 to 1977 performance costumes to give Ramona for her birthday. They are truly magnificent!
As you can see, it was still raining, but not very hard.
For Brendan, it was a pilgrimage to the roots of Rock.
So, tonight we are in the beautiful town of Bolivar, Tennessee, and should be to the North Carolina border by tomorrow night.
We had a wonderful dinner at Joe's Restaurant and Steakhouse, which Brendan is currently sleeping off.
