Road Trippin’


Road trips are fun!  My recent trip to Memphis took about eight hours from Cincinnati and I was equipped with my I-Pod filled with lots of new music, my camera, my sense of adventure, and my imagination.

A setting on my new camera called Color Sketch is fun.  This is me…

Upon arrival to our hotel, the Springhill Suites by Marriott on Court Street, we were checked in by this gregarious registration clerk named Kevin.  I think I asked him if he knew what the weather forecast was for the next few days and he showed me his phone.  He reminds me of a commercial…

I was impressed by the decor of the hotel.  This is a section of the lobby…

I assume this is a vintage photo of what Main Street in Memphis looked like a while back…

I love mirrored furniture…probably because I love reflections…

Although Cindy and I were anxious to have a drink and toast to our arrival, she waited patiently while I took a few photos of the room…

We brought salad, fruit and I made homemade minestrone soup for the trip…knowing that we would have a refrigerator and microwave.

Say cheese…

In the past road trips weren’t really my thing.  I think because I was more intent on the destination than the journey!
