We started out from Decatur around nine am. The sky was blue and the clouds were so pretty. We had heard that Hurricane Barry was bearing down on the Louisiana Coast but it was a beautiful all be it hot morning in NoAla.
Our first stop was McDonalds for coffee and we were on our way to Mississippi. First Stop was Corinth, MS. There is a newer Cracker Barrel on Highway 72 so we stopped there to use the restroom and I picked up a magnet for my magnet collection at Grimmwood.
It seems there is a Honey theme in this store.
Once I had purchased my magnet, we were headed to Memphis and my favorite bakery ever!
I had to use every bit of restraint that I had in me Ladies.
I told Marvin we could each choose two goodies. He chose an oatmeal pie and a Grass Hopper. The Grass Hopper is a chocolate cupcake with mint icing. I chose PROZAC...of course....chocolate chocolate all the way. And I picked up a Pucker Up...lemon. We had one as a dessert on Saturday and saved the other for our lunch on Sunday.
We hit Arkansas about one pm.
Welcome to Arkansas in the middle of the Mississppi River Bridge.
We rolled along with no problems at all reaching our first stop, Conway, AR.
We used Trip Advisor to find this great restaurant...Mike's Place.
Conway has a quaint down town area.
Marvin chose Bacon Wrapped Scallions.
I had Pasta Toscana...I could not even eat half of this so our sweet waitress, Tiffany, boxed it up with two plastic forks so we can have the rest for lunch on Sunday. We are hoping to find a nice rest area to have a little picnic.
Traveling is so much fun....seeing new places and trying new things.
