Day 8 : Magic Macys amazing Breakfast & tour.

Thursday 29th July 2010

After a sleep uninterupted by civil war heros, we awoke to the aroma of Macys home ground coffee. Breakfast was served to us & another couple in the formal dining room, cooked by Macy herself.

She took us on a tour of the house, The musical bed Ian slept in, was bought by her mother in Auction for $2100 dollars. Under the bed is the Wedding Dress of Kleins daughter Susan for whom the house was built.. Macy was a mine of Civil war info,She explained in detail how the Hairpin bend in the Mississippi River was lost, after a canal was dug to make Vicksburg more convenient. Nature foiled the army's attempt by creating another route entirely.

We said our goodbyes & headed off towards Memphis on the continents most boring highway..Min & I snoozed the hours away, Min completed several more pages in her  bible word search, The fun never ends!

Once in Memphis we headed out to the car rental office & painlessly exchanged our broken car for a new one : )

The Heartbreak Hotel was our next stop, as expected it is a kitch paradise, We ventured to the pool ( Heart shaped ) Which was populated by some "Larger ladies " No suprise to hear raucus laughter & a Watford accent complaining loudly about the lack of Typhoo tea..Nice.

The evening offered a challenge to find a Chinese Resturant ( Mins Choice ) ..
We found a fast food Asian chain called Pei Wei & ordered a selection of tasty dishes.

We will return to our Hotel shortly & try to find a TV channel / Radio station playing something other than the king.

Goodnight dear reader xx
