We left Red Bay at about 10:00 AM and headed for Mississippi.
We traveled on the Natchez Trace for a while.
|Then we got off the Trace and traveled another great road with no traffic.|
In fact the ride was so smooth and boring that some of us took a nap.
|Then we found a Huddle House for a lunch stop.|
Once out of town we traveled for mile after mile through cotton fields.
|Those are large bails of cotton, I mean the size of a large truck.|
I can't imagine how much these bails must weigh
We passed some of these small homes that looked like they were slave houses in their day.
|Once in Clarksdale, we stopped at the museum to see if they had any info.|
|Then I spotted this on Ike Turner. I didn't know he was from this town.|
|Next to the Museum is Ground Zero Blues Club|
|Check the link above and see who own this Club. And yes, that is the front door.|
|This is the place for Blues.|
|And this is the famous Devils Crossroads where Robert Johnson sold his soul.|
This weekend the town is having a Blues Festival so stay tuned.
