We woke up and checked out of the hotel quickly in the morning. Our first stop was back to the river where we had gone before to do another walk. One of the sites to see along the river is an old Navy submarine that was in service during WWII. Unfortunately, it wasn't open for tours at the time of our visit, but it was still quite cool to see.After our walk, we hit the road en route to Memphis. The drive was pretty mellow and before long we found ourselves crossing into Tennessee.Keen eyes will pick out the pyramid in the previous picture. Seeing it as we drove into Memphis and knowing that we had some time to kill before meeing up with our friend, Erin, we decided to stop and check it out. It was none other than a Bass Pro Shops 'resort', for lack of a better word. I will let the pictures tell the story for the most part, but I'll just say that this place had it all; ponds stocked with fish, live alligators, restaurants (including one at the very top of the pyramid), a hotel, and of course all the outdoor supplies one could ever want. It was amazing. I want to take a vacation there.Afterwards we went to a little coffee shop near the Mississippi river and hung out for a bit before walking along the river. It was beautiful, and we were also blessed with excellent weather.By the time we were done walking, we drove over to our friend, Erin's house to meet up with her. We caught up with her for a little while and met her roommate, then the four of us went out to dinner. After dinner, we went back to their apartment and hung out for a while drinking wine.Overall, a great day!
