Memphis/Graceland

All photos taken by Andy Clark

  •  
    Got to tour Elvis' Graceland in January, always being a music lover, I was mesmerized. Let's start with the beautiful, historic Peabody Hotel.... next photos please.....
  •  
    Do you know of the World Famous Peabody Ducks? They spend their days in this georgeous fountain in the lobby of the Peabody.
  •  
    There's a big ceremony to get the ducks to and from the lobby. A red carpet is rolled out with their daily 11am entrance and 5pm exit to and from the fountain.
  •  
    Where do they go after 5pm?
  •  
    To their overnight accomodations ....
  •  
    the Duck Palace....
  •  
    a bigger area, away from the crowds.
  •  
    Yes, it's on the rooftop of the Peabody Hotel.
  •  
    Went to Memphis with Kayla from "Woody and the Wake Up Call" ....our goal was to learn about St. Jude's Hospital. We're preparing for our WCOL radiothon.
  •  
    We might have discovered Beale Street too. It was cool to hear a piano player singing "Walking In Memphis".....while being in Memphis.
  •  
    Walking in Memphis includes the line "saw the ghost of Elvis" ....so I had to include a tour of Graceland. Here's a view from the street, it's on a beautiful piece of land, the mansion is behind the trees.
  •  
    Here's Elvis's famous TV room. Yes, he had 3....to watch all 3 networks back in the early 70's.
  •  
    No I'm not touching the pool table, imagining playing a game of pool with Elvis though... that'd have been fun!
  •  
    NEW to the Graceland Tour...... getting to see the JUNGLE ROOM.
  •  
    That's a waterfall.
  •  
    Check out the wooden carvings,
  •  
    animal horns,
  •  
    and a bar at the end. I love it!
  •  
    Here's the small piano Elvis played as he sang for some friends the morning he died.
  •  
    That room leads to dozens and dozens of awards and his jumpsuits on display. This one has a tiger on the front.
  •  
    Then outside, not far from the pool- the tour ends with his final resting place, next to his mother and other relatives. Thank you Elvis, for all those great years of music and more!
