(West Memphis, AR) Hi 66 Lo 44 – It was chilly this morning getting ready to leave. It was very fast since we were only in place for two days and didn’t do much to mess up anything. I was so glad to get out of the trees. I think Jim would have had to move me if we were to stay another day. My mood changes for the worse when we're closed in by trees. Today’s destination took care of that!
We had a great travel day, smooth and uneventful. We’re now in West Memphis, AR on the bank of the Mississippi River at the Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River RV Park. It’s our kind of park! The only thing it's missing is paved roads in the park instead of gravel.
We're backed right up to the Mississippi River. Here’s our view from the inside of the RV.
We have a great view of the river barges as they go up and down the river. I won’t bore you with lots of pictures of barges, but I have to include a couple.
A few views of our site.
Not sure what the deal is with this building. Maybe it was "shoved" by a flood at one time.
The air was chilly, but sitting behind the RV in the sun was very comfortable. I may just have to stay here. :)
We plan to do a little sightseeing in downtown Memphis tomorrow. We came through Memphis a couple of years ago and took the time to see Graceland, but we didn't get to see the downtown area. Hopefully we'll find a good BBQ place while we're here.
Thanks for all the comments lately. We really appreciate it.
