Aqua Yacht Harbor and Graceland

While we're here for a while we decided to rent a car and go to Memphis and check out Graceland the  home of Elvis.  I can see why Elvis is worth more dead than alive.  It was $42.00 per person for only the tour of the house.  It was more it you wanted to see the car museum or his private jets, or the movie theater.  They also charged $10.00 to park in the parking lot.  We went on a Monday and it was crowed.  After seeing the house I can only imagine what it must have been like to be there back in the day.  Meanwhile back here at the boat we have been doing some polishing and extra cleaning to get the boat looking good for the up coming rendezvous at Joe Wheeler State Park in Alabama.  If you recall a past post in May we attended the one in Norfolk and now it's the fall rendezvous put on by America's Great Loop Cruisers Assoc.

Not as big as you might think and no tour of the second floor
Part of front gate, (notice all the writing from fans)
Back of house
Living room looking into the music room

This is the room for his Mom and Dad 
Media room
Jungle room

Horses were one of his passions
Rows and rows of gold and platinum records
Costumes he wore for his concerts
More awards and memoribilia
This was in the racket ball building
Meditation Garden were Elvis, his parents and Grandmother are buried

One of the planes
Aqua Yacht Harbor
