Up early to pack and get to the Greyhound bus station an hour before our departure time - we were a little earlier than that so it was a bit of a wait.

... downpour as we were partway through putting up our tents! I was soaked by the time we left to look at Beale Street and have dinner at the famous B B King's Blues Club, but the experience was worth it.

We got to touch a guitar owned by Johnny Cash, and ...

(although American bread is weird and everything tastes sweet enough to be a
Greggs iced bun, even their artisan loaves...Laura and I have had many a
discussion about whether American visitors to the UK would find our bread
bitter or not).
