We both succumbed to a stack of French Toast with Maple Syrup and Strawberries for Breakfast, but let's not dwell on it. Drove to the nearby Vicksburg National Military Park. This is a 16 mile drive around all the positions, trenches and camps of the Union and Confederate troops during the siege of Vicksburg, when the Confederates held out for 10 weeks against overwhelming Union forces in 1863, desperate to prevent the Union getting control of the Mississippi (which they ultimately ...

Drove to down town Memphis and found a park in time for getting to the famous Peabody Hotel to see the five residing ducks returning for the night to their penthouse suite at 5pm. The march of the ducks, which dates back to a 1930s-era drunken prank, is a quintessential Memphis tradition. It always draws major crowds and so it did ...
