Snapshot Saturday - Walkin' in Memphis



We're in Memphis this weekend for some work and fun.  This photo is sunset over the Mississippi River on the first night from the patio at the top of our hotel :) 
Just lovely, don't you think?

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by Alyce over @ At Home with Books

    1. The 2nd night we were here we actually watched the sun set over a period of almost 2 minutes...right into the water it seemed...really pretty.

    1. It's a mixture of really nice places and some not so nice places, Natalie. The city is trying to bring it back up though. We walked down Beale Street last night and there were policemen everywhere to keep things safe. It can be a dangerous city if you don't know where to go and where not to go. I hope the politicians and city officials can bring it back though bc there's a lot of history here.

    1. We listened to some great jazz bands on Beale Street on Thursday night before it got packed with people Friday and Saturday night. We walked down there last night just to see and decided very quickly that the weekend nights are a whole different ballgame :) We came back to the rooftop pretty quickly ;)

    1. Memphis is struggling to survive...but right now there is a strong push to renovate the downtown area back to its historical splendor. I hope they succeed :)

  17. That is truly gorgeous.
    One would just want to sit there, sip some eternal drink, and never leave.

    1. The Madison Hotel has a bar on the rooftop...so the eternal drink is certainly a possibility ;)

  19. I hope your trip to Memphis was lovely!
    Ok, we are on our way to the beach....I am catching up on reading your blog in the van. I should have just left my book at home! Ha! I can just keep on reading your book reviews and I will be good! :) Seriously, I love reading your reviews.....it is fun for me.
    i brought only one book for the week.....The Count of Monte Cristo. Unabridged. 1200+ pages. Do you think I can finish it? Do you like it?

    1. Roan, it's been a while since I read The Count of Monte Cristo or anything else by Dumas but I like the good old fashioned action packed classics like this one...not so much explicit violence like some of the stuff today. Just makes me feel better sometimes :) I usually pair a chunkster like this one with something shorter and completely different so I don't get worn out before I'm done. I'm reading Stephen Kind's The Stand right now and loving it...but I've got a couple other shorter titles that I'm playing with from time to time (short funny stuff on my Iphone for walking and lighthearted dog stories on my nightstand) :) You can do it! And, I think you'll like it :)
