Walking In Memphis

After the long drive through Arkansas on Tuesday today was spent in Memphis. The weather has been hot and sunny - ideal for seeing the sights.
We started with Graceland, the ultimate Memphis attraction. Even though it was a bit of a tourist trap we really enjoyed it. Graceland itself was much smaller than you would imagine but very well preserved and presented.

Here is the front of the house and below a photo of the famous Jungle Room.
Then it was off to Sun Studios - where Elvis made his first record. Other famous acts who recorded there include Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.
This photo was taken inside the recording studio.
Now we are preparing for the highlight of the visit - the Paducah Quilt Show - which we will be visiting tomorrow!
