          The duck march at the hotel is most entertaining- and a very popular attraction! They march the red carpet at 11 AM to the lobby fountain... where they stay happily swimming in the fountain until 5PM. Then, the 5o'clock march , led by the Duckmaster out of the water, across the red carpet to the elevator. ADORABLE!!!

          More than just a duck show

          The Peabody is a charming old hotel, most famous for its ducks, which live in a "palace" on the roof and emerge via the elevator everyday to bath in the lobby fountain from 11am-5pm. There is a grand ceremony at their entrance and exit -- attended by busloads (literally) of people. The ducks have a whole history, told by a Duck Master, which is worth reading online if you can't make the live show. In addition to ducks, the Peabody has relatively large rooms (for such an older hotel) -- nicely decorated with new furnishings and high-quality linens. Service has been excellent all around -- desk staff, concierge, bar staff, restaurant staff. One small complaint: the walls are fairly thin. It hasn't been a problem when the hotel was full of geographers at a conference, but now that we have wedding parties on the floor, it is quite loud. It also made the Thursday night party on the roof very loud, but that ends tastefully at 10pm.

          The historic hotel is absolutely beautiful and elegant. The service was outstanding. I requested a room with a decent view of Memphis, since it was our first time to visit Memphis, and they accomodated us with the perfect view from the front of the hotel. Coincidentally, we had a bird's eye view of Rendezvous Ribs, a must for ribs lovers to try at least once; but, our room was beside the elevator, so we had to deal with its mechanical noises all night. If we hadn't had a good view, I would have requested to be moved. Also, I bought the art print from a local artist that is displayed in Rendezvous Ribs and that you can buy in the hotel gift shop that represents the view we had of the alley where Rendezvous is located. (yeah, I'm a little sentimental). The Peabody ducks are awesome! We got to watch both the evening and morning march. So cute! Those ducks are rock stars!

          The morning started off with my laptop not charging. The cable is a bad design and kinks very easily and so I thought I needed to buy a new charging unit. I've already had to buy one about 18 months ago. Anyway googled (as I do) and saw that Walmart stocked Apple Mac chargers. Googled a bit more and saw that there was a Walmart on Elvis Presley …

          I spent the first part of the morning downloading photos from both our cameras and getting the last three blog entries done. Although we didn't have to have the hire car back till 1pm we decided to take it back early – with no GPS life was a bit difficult. We needed to refuel as well so I used google maps on my Ipad before we left the hotel …

          I was up first and got some photo downloading and a bit of blog writing done then once Craig was up we headed down to breakfast. The hotel had a nice executive lounge with fruit, granola and yoghurt, bacon and egg biscuits, cereal etc available. Biscuits are popular for breakfast here - I'd describe them as *********es - they don't really do it for …

          We have arrived early, so we had a chance to look around this grand old hotel a bit. We found a mini museum describing the Peabody's history and how close it came to being demolished in the 80's. It took a $25 million refurb to get it back to shape and now it's back as the grand old hotel of the South. Oh, and it has ducks that come down the …
