Breakfast in the RV. Left Brinkley on I-40 East and drove to Memphis TN. The last time we were in Memphis we wanted to see the Peabody Hotel Ducks but didn't have time. Today we stopped to see them. Every day at 11:00am they bring ducks down from the roof in the elevator to the lobby where they parade on a red carpet from the elevator to a fountain in the center of the lobby. They stay in the fountain until 5:00pm when they parade back to the elevator and go back up to the roof. When the elevator came down and the doors opened the ducks ran so fast neither of us got a good picture so we took pictures of them in the fountain. After seeing the ducks and buying souvenirs it was back on I-40 East to US-78 to Tupelo MS to see the house were Elvis was born. The Elvis Presley Birthplace not only has the house but also the church where he sang, a museum, chapel, gift shop and a movie of his early days. After several hours at Elvis's Birthplace we found a place to stay at Campground at Barnes Crossing in Tupelo. Had supper at Red Lobster.
