Day 45 Thr Last Day

Well, here we are sitting on the banks of the Mississippi River on our last day of vacation. So sad!!
We have had a great time. It's hard to believe that it is has not rained since before we left Chattanooga---UNTIL NOW. It has been very chilly and clammy cold since we arrived. That didn't stop us from sleeping with the window open so we could hear the barges and tug boats going down the Mississippi  all night.

We did get a few minutes to sit outside on the bench and have a second cup of coffee with Bentley as he watched the barges go up and down the river.
 David took a little stroll down to the river's edge. We could start liking this lifestyle.
 And Nicholas couldn't resist his famous pose in the cabinet when David opened it up to get a bottle of water.
 For our last dinner, we went downtown Memphis to get some of the famous Memphis Bar B Que.
On Greg's recommendation we went to Rendezvous, which has been around since about 1948. We had a heck of a time finding it as it was in an alley. We drove around and around looking for the address which wasn't there. Finally we figured it out.
 We both had ribs which were great. So glad we had a chance to try them. Thanks Greg!
We head home today. Back to the real world. The kitties will enjoy having room to run up the stairs and to get back on their towers so they can look at the birds. Lots of laundry and MH cleaning too. UGHHH!! But it was a wonderful vacation.
