Power Hour

While each day takes on a life of its own on this trip, there is usually one thing for certain. Somewhere between 2pm and 6pm we crash for a bit back at the motel. Always wondering if we'll venture back out, there's never much question as undoubtedly that "power hour" rejuvenates us and gets us ready for round two (or three...or four...).

My favorite power hour occurred a few days ago in Memphis. We'd done a lot--Graceland, Neely's, Slave Haven, and the National Civil Rights Museum--and we all needed a break. When we got to the motel we did the usual--a little resting, a little blogging, and even some Webkinz. At the start we thought that there was no way we were going back out. After all, it was around 6pm already. 7pm we all jumped up and got ready to head back to Beale Street for another round of ribs, blues, and fun.

Today, our siesta (we are in New Mexico!) began at 2. A bit early but no less necessary for recharging our batteries so we can head down to Old Town Albuquerque for an early evening of shopping and strolling.
