Our first day in Memphis was a LONG one! We started by crossing the Mississippi from West Memphis, AR, to Memphis, TN. After parking at the Visitors' Center, we took a long walk on the "Riverwalk", a several-mile-long loop through small parks and lovely, upscale, neighborhoods adjacent to downtown Memphis on the banks of the Mississippi. Sacramento, our prior hometown, could learn a thing or two (or FOUR) about making good use of the riverfront from Memphis - our walk was interesting, beautiful, clean.

Isn't she a doll? This is Crystal, the little pup belonging to Audrey Conley, Odel's niece. I took at least 20 photos to get this shot; she DOES NOT sit still! We spent the afternoon visiting with Audrey, Odel's sister Emma, and Odel's niece Jacquie - and Crystal, of course.

After socializing, we hit the Memphis Costco, our first in three months! We were happy to get home (after dark). Just after we carried in the groceries, I heard the throbbing of an engine on the river. Looked out the window to see this LARGE, paddlewheel steamer traveling upriver. It was quite a sight.
