Sun Studios; Memphis

sun studiosAfter Graceland, we jumped in our car and drove to downtown Memphis to Sun Studios. It’s not a far ride, maybe 10 minutes.

Sun Studios is the place where Elvis recorded his first song! Can you believe the place still exists?

Now honestly, I thought this place might be a bit boring.

I mean, really, how exciting could it be to see an old-time recording studio that’s over 50 years old.

Especially, with my daughter. Who was 5, at the time. Who had already spent the morning at a train museum, in the car, and visiting a 1970s rock-star’s mansion.

Take a look and let me know what you think…

And, where do you think we’re were going?

Yes! Graceland!

Um, was the picture a give-away?

I was a little nervous about taking Leah to Graceland. She doesn’t know any Elvis songs. Sacrilege?

I thought touring the mansion and planes might not be amusing for her and therefore torturous for me…

5 Hours In Anchorage

anchorageAs we said good-bye to our cruise ship in Whittier, we got on our tour bus to Anchorage. The first interesting thing I can tell you about is the tunnel, which allows only on direction of traffic through at a time.

Yep, you have to wait on one side while the traffic passes, then it’s your turn to go through the tunnel. And no, there was no accident or calamity, it’s always that way.

The other thing I can tell you (again) is the scenery is beautiful! Check this out…
