Our Trip to Memphis

Our Trip to Memphis
We drove from Nashville west on I-40 to Memphis (about 3.5 hours).  It was a pretty drive with green on both sides and lots of woods.  Tennessee has very nice rest stops too.
The legendary BB King Blues Club on Beale Street
More of Beale Street.  It was extremely hot and humid, the only day the humidity was really bad. 
We cooled off in our hotel room with a fabulous view of the muddy Mississippi from our 15th story window.  That bridge connects Memphis, TN with Memphis, Arkansas.
We took a sightseeing cruise down the Mississippi.  These are older bridges.  Look how thick the water is.
For our anniversary, we ate dinner at Texas De Brazil.  What an experience.  It was extremely classy and fancy and yet more food than you could every dream of eating.  A salad bar unlike any you've seen (sushi, smoked salmon, lobster bisque, etc.) and all you can eat of various, fine meats, brought to your table by servers.  When we left it was pouring and storming out of nowhere, and we got soaked.  I had to leave Christina behind to totter in her heels while I ran to try to keep my cast dry.
The legendary Sun Records where Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Charlie Rich recorded their first albums.  This is the recording studio that was portrayed in the movie Walk the Line.

Cool pictures- Dowtown memphis has some really neat signs, such as the trashcan one. Does that recording studio still do business or is it more of a historical site?
