Drove to Memphis to see Elvis's house. Driving to it, I recognized it immediately. The tour was great. The house is much smaller than you would expect. The property and grounds are beautiful.
We then went over to Beale St. And ate lunch at B.B. Kings. May go back tomorrow night for the live music.

With the exception that I didn't have good 'festival shoes', this has been an enjoyable layover, yet I'm ready to get back on the bus again!
