Beale Street

Dancing in the streets

Run away

Candy on bar at Coyote Ugly

Today is a good day, we pick up Dawn at the airport this afternoon so she can spend a few days with us. This will work great because while I am working during the day Candy and Dawn will travel around and be together. It is long days for Candy at the motorhome with me working all day and with no friends or places to go. This week she will have Dawn to chum around with.

We got around and drove to the airport at 1 pm because Dawn’s flight was to arrive at 1:15 pm, which did arrive on time. We picked her up and away shopping we went to Whole Foods, someplace that Dawn and Candy had talked about on the phone before she got here. Got done at Whole Foods, drove back to the motorhome so Dawn could get settled and plans could be made. Tonight the Memphis Grizzlies basketball team will be playing at the FedEx Forum downtown, they are in the NBA playoffs, so downtown would be packed. The girls decided to take the shuttle bus from the Heartbreak Hotel down to Beale Street to see the action. I stayed back at the motorhome and watched the NASCAR race on TV.

The girls said I could never get around on my scooter on Beale Street tonight because of so many people because of Saturday night party and the Memphis Grizzles playing. The FedEx Forum is located just off Beale Street in downtown Memphis. They enjoyed the trip and all the people dancing in the streets. The girls were amazed with the open drinking going on, must be on Beale Street it is ok since all the bars sell drinks on the sidewalk. People were dancing in the street, blue bands playing, just having a good time, under the watchful eye of the Memphis Police Department which were everywhere.

They got back around 9:30 and that was it for the night.
