Denim Springs to Memphis

Started this morning in Denim Springs, LA and spent the night in Memphis, TN!

We arrived back into Natchez just in time to stop in and get lunch at Bobby's mom's house. It wasn't anything fancy, just sandwiches and fruit, with a tall glass of iced tea, but it sure tasted good!

After a leisurely lunch we got back on the bikes and headed North. What a great day. The riding was great and you couldn’t ask for a better destination. Riding the Blues Highway from beginning to end, and listening to live music in Memphis is an experience any Blues fan can appreciate. Almost every town in the Mississippi Delta has at least one famous Blues musician that called it home. And Memphis is legendary! Bobby decided to spoil me, so I got to park my bike at the Peabody!!! The ducks are cool, but for me the highlight of the Peabody is the BED! It has to have been the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.

After we got cleaned up from our ride , we had BBQ ribs at the Blue's City Cafe, then walked Beale St. There were acrobats doing a performance in the middle of the street. As the sun went down and the neon came to life, the magic of Beale Street really set in. We finally settled into a little bar with a guy who used to play guitar with Johnny Cash. He and his band sounded so much like Johnny we almost wondered if he'd made some of the Man in Black's records. It's hard to beat great music and good drinks in a place with so much amazing history.
