Day 2 was spent mostly in the car...The Kallemyn's in the car...
We left Greenville around 11:15 am and headed east. We took it slow, enjoying the scenery, stopping to sit down for lunch and even for some great photos. We turned around in Arkansas when we crossed the state line because the camera didn't click fast enough to get a picture of the "Welcome to Arkansas" sign, but we got it the second time around. Although we didn't stay or do anything besides have lunch in AR I still had to take a picture!
The sign says it all...
We enjoyed spending time together, talking about how much fun we had at the wedding and imagining how much fun lay ahead for us. We were so excited to be on our honeymoon and headed to Tennessee! We made it to Memphis around 6:15 pm.
We found our hotel very easily, checked in and got ready to find a good bite to eat. We headed to Beale Street, Memphis' version of Bourbon Street. It was so much fun. It was good that it was a Monday night because it wasn't packed. There was just enough people out.
I had the Bird House special: Fried chicken tenders served with mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy and a jalapeno cornbread muffin. Blake had the same except for the chicken, it was steak, chicken fried. :)Obviously it was good...
After we left Miss Polly's we headed south and were beckoned into a small juke joint, Blue's Hall, by the sound of, what else, the blues. It was so exciting!! I wanted to jump up and down; I was in the Soul City listening to live blues music...it was so much fun!
The enertainment for the evening was The Dr. Feelgood Potts Band. It was true blues...songs about outlaw inlaws, hard times and lost lovers. The bar was dark and the walls were pictures of old school Memphis and famous blues singers.
We decided to head to the next place and ended up at the Pepsi Cola Park (Judith, you're dad would be so proud.) There was another live blues band but this band was a little more upbeat blues, if that's possible. It was nice to sit in the park, next to the Memphis bums, and enjoy the atmosphere. If I were a bum, I'd choose Memphis to call "Home."
After we chilled at the park for a while we walked across Beale we went to Alfred's and tonight it was karaokee...fun times. Neither of us sang but we were serenaded by some great singers.
