|Notice the front plate...GOTCHA!!! How cute!!|
We took a few walks today, one to a waterfall, but there wasn't much water falling, then one to the highest point in the Alabama section. We also took a drive on the "old" trace so that was cool.
We made it to Tupelo this afternoon and decided to go visit Elvis's birthplace. I was here a couple of years ago with the volunteers when Annette was with us, as Elvis was her idol.. We also toured Graceland when we were in Memphis. It was a tourist trap but we looked around and got a few pictures.
Went by the grocery store and now we are in the Super 8 for the night.

Tomorrow we head for highway 61..the Blues Highway and meet up with Al and Irene. He called and they are spending the night in Mobile, AL...I was there when I was 6 weeks old and daddy had school..Guess we lived in a motel there for about 4 months.
What a great day and drive we had!!
