Texarkana to Memphis 277 miles 41/2 hours
Another driving day with a stop off in Little Rock Arkansas for a break. Driving was the best place to be as it was again over 100 degrees.
We enjoyed our break in Little Rock famous resident Bill Clinton 42nd US President. We visited the historical district, River Markets and took a trolley ride to see the sights in the short time we were here. Very clean and pleasant place to visit. On the road again we pushed on to Memphis arriving about 5pm.
After checking in we headed out for our first BBQ since returning to the US. Now the question is Tennessee BBQ as good as Texas BBQ? It was sensational but the jury still out until we get back to Texas to compare. We went to Corky’s BBQ and started with a half onion loaf and shared the ribs for two.
Almost had to crawl home we had eaten so much and Tony our waiter took great care of us and even got some of Sharpie’s jokes and fired back with some of his own.
Tomorrow: A day spent seeing the sites of Memphis
