    Shacked up and I loved it!

    I'm a musician and totally loved being offered a complimentary acoustic guitar to thrash about whilst chilling on my shack's balcony...nice touch!
    As their website states, their shacks are real shacks and so they look and smell like real shacks. Ours wasn't offensively dirty or anything but if you're more partial to Choice Hotels' type places then brace yourself a little! It's a great experience though,

    Our shack had a TV but it only played one radio station (not sure what the deal was but didn't care, no TV for 2 nights wasn't a deal breaker for me). There was a very comfy king sized bed in our shack (Office Shack) along with an air con unit, a fridge & a microwave. Their on site bar is awesome with a performance area for guitar clubs etc. that use the place for learning (beers were VERY reasonably priced btw and a good selection too).
    They have just coffee and doughnuts for breakfast (complimentary but first-come-first-serve basis).
    If you like photography then you'll take plenty of pics of this fairly substantial & quaint premises and if you like cats then you'll love the several personable kitties that roam about the place.
    It's a 5-10min drive out of town, BUT, if you wanna go into town of an evening to have a drink and listen to some live blues, then Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club offers a handy limousine shuttle to and fro the club (fee was discretionary for us but the going tip is $5 per person each way, arrange with a member of staff at the hotel). There are a couple of taxis too but they're more expensive and probably less fun!
    If going back to Clarksdale I'd stay here again without question!

    After only a Scottish drive, we arrived in our new home for the next two nights, Clarksdale. And was I excited, you bet your **** I was! I'm not sure at what point in my planning that I came across Clarksdale, I think it may have been whilst watching Stephen Fry's drive along the Mississippi, but the tiny town in the middle of nowhere in the Delta …

    Theres Something Completely Clear Happening Here

    ... Deanne and I witnessed one of the most breath-taking sunsets in the world, right here. It's all here! Everything except the right people with the right stuff to make it happen. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the casinos. Yes, gambling dens on the river front were legalised in the poor state of Mississippi in 1990. In 2012 alone the state earned almost 3 billion dollars in gambling revenue. That money is going somewhere, but it sure as hell ain't going into a tourist trade for the ...

    We arrived in Clarksdale, the home of the Delta Blues and Morgan Freemanīs club, Club Zero with not much of an idea of what the town had to offer, but it was in the travel guide and so we set about exploring.

    Clarksdale, like a lot of the Mississippi isnīt a rich area and this was obvious by the city centre. It was the place time ...

    Mississippi Delta blues on the Tamale Trail

    ... building a juke joint look. Bring your Sharpies: everything in the place is written on and we too found an open spot to leave our mark. A surprisingly good beer selection is listed on a huge chalkboard behind the bar. We took a seat at a long table facing the stage and a waitress soon takes our orders. I ordered six tamales with a side of fried green tomatoes. Whereas the tamales at Hot Tamale Heaven were soft and oily, these at Ground Zero were ...

    Along the Mississippi - Winterville Indian Mounds

    ... Mississippi, that doesn't prepare this favored fish in some form. Make your next stop Buck's Restaurant in Greenville (off U.S. 82). Don't let the strip mall address deter you from savoring the cooking skills of owner S.B. Buck. He serves his whole cat fried to perfection ($6.75, including two sides)." Not to mention the rib tips and ribs. Mmm good. From there we carried on up highway 1 to the Winterville Mounds. From the brochure I note that "this is the site ...
