Today was music day. We toured the Rock-N-Soul museum, one block off of famous Beale Street. The museum covered music from blacks on the southern plantations, to the blues in Memphis, to Elvis and ended with a blurb on the Beatles. The girls, Annie, Sammy and Lilly, lasted a long time, as they loved listening to the audio tour and the music. After the museum, we crossed the street and toured the Gibson guitar factory. We wore our factory safety goggles and saw how they make the famous guitars.
All the music in the morning gave way to lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. What was really fun was listening to the blues by a live band just playing on Beale Street. It was a little like Telegraph Ave in Berkeley, only better.
In the afternoon we took our rental car and drove around town, stopping to let the kids have a great game of tag in a park. By the time we ate an early dinner and got back to the hotel, it was time for a short movie. Dana and I enjoyed some adult quiet time in the lobby by the duck fountain. Tomorrow the Biscontis leave, and we'll head out of town as well. It has been so much fun to have our friends share in our adventure. Thank you for coming Biscontis!
