Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

In our southern travels we drove through Greenwood, Mississippi on our way to Vicksburg.  This town is in the heart of the Mississippi Delta and has quite a history in the Civil Rights Movement of the 20th Century.

The downtown was deserted.

This delta region is incredibly flat.  We drove west from Greenwood to Greenville hoping to stop at a famous hole in the wall restaurant famous for tamales and with the claim to fame that Elvis and President Clinton ate there.

We found it in a very poor neighborhood and discovered it wasn't open for lunch.  I wasn't comfortable taking any photos.  Here is one from their website.

We did manage to find the Indian mounds outside of town but that park was closed too on a Saturday.

Our trip continued to Vicksburg where we had reserved accommodations at a Bed and Breakfast using the internet.  More on that in the next posting.
