Now that we have dealt with the rabbits, let's talk about ducks! Ed and I spent the night after Thanksgiving in Memphis,, home of Elvis and Graceland, at the Peabody Hotel, the grand hotel of the south. This was a wedding gift from my pals back in Massachusetts.
The Peabody is a lovely old hotel and we were treated to special accomodations on the Club Level that included hot hors d'eouvres and wine at the cocktail hour in a special lounge, pastries with turn-down service at night and a special concierge just for that floor, which is the 12th floor, the top floor with a lovely view.
The room was really beautiful. Very elegant. One of the MOST comfortable beds I have slept in...EVER!
I enjoyed a glass of wine in my robe. (sorry my wine loving friends. It was white Zin.)
Elegant bath with TV and telephone.
People gathered all around and blocked our view, but it was still fun. At 5:00 every evening, they reverse the trip and go back up in the elevator to their rooftop palace.
One of the desserts in one of their restaurants with the "ducky" theme.
If we had more time we would have taken a carriage ride. One of several out in front of the hotel, this one was all lit up and was in the shape of Cinderella's coach.
This little guy, seated in the driver's seat and dressed like Santa was waiting for his next customer.
There was another carriage, too, but we don't think the driver ever bathes. YeeHaw! I don't think he had many customers.
