The good part about getting up too early was that we got there early. Our first stop was Sun Records.
Since the tour didn’t start for 45 minutes we decided to see other sights and drove to the Lorraine Motel, a depressing reminder that I’m glad is still there, exactly like we’ve seen it in so many photographs, but now a civil rights museum.
It was a great tour. Then off to Royal where we got the Royal tour. (Remember, Chuck Berry recorded "Back to Memphis" in that room! And then there's the rest of them-- Al Green, and Ann Peebles, etc.) Thank you Boo Mitchell.
We saw Stax, too, but I’ll wait until tomorrow to visit in more depth.
Then I rested while Doug shopped. He’s got carloads of stuff for his family. I better get busy.
