We didn’t visit Graceland. I know that will shock many people, but neither of us are rabid Elvis fans. Plus it costs 28 bucks for the tour. So we contented ourselves with a drive-by and took photos of Graceland behind its screen of trees, the graffiti covering the stone wall fronting Elvis Presley Boulevard, and Elvis’ private aircraft. If you are an Elvis devotee who is offended by our casual attitude, I have a piece of advice: get a life.
Today we drove down the route of the old Natchez Trace, now called the Natchez Trace Parkway
Tonight and tomorrow night we’re at the lovely Cedar Grove B&B in Vicksburg, recommended to us by our good friends the Martens. We have had a great dinner (fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits) and a bottle of champagne. Tomorrow we’ll explore the town and decide whether to continue our journey south. Home is looking pretty good about now.
