Elvis and the Mississippi

I never really considered Elvis as a Philantropist, a leader in setting standards for people with means to care for others and the world in which he lived, I knew him only as a teenage boy knows musicians.  Their music.  The 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, decades spanned by a musician who has so many awards that stand to this day.  I was truly moved by the tour.  From his home that on the inside

looked amazingly like my parents home in Mineola and Lake Ronkonkoma New York.  If there was anything I found disturbing about the tour was the little his daughter had to do with him and the Presley foundation.

The tour of the mansion, the grounds, and the history of not only Elvis but Memphis using headphones and iPads was done extremely well using John Stamos as the narrator not only added to the tour but provides some insights you might not get otherwise.

Our stay along the Mississippi was magical.


Sun through the morning fog


Foggy mornings, the sound of fog horns throughout the night, tugs on the river, all a beautiful experience.
