We headed out to Tunica, Mississippi on our annual trip to try a bit of luck at the casinos. Below is a picture crossing the Mississippi River into the state of Tennessee. Upon arriving in Tunica, we spent the next 3 nights at Gold Strike Hotel and Casino and enjoyed a great dinner buffet.
Day 2: We visited Fitzgerald's for a 4-hour stay and a breakfast buffet. The picture below was taken from the buffet and shows how low the Mississippi River is at this time.
Then our passengers had the choice of going to Graceland, to the Memphis Zoo, or staying at Gold Strike. Since I opted to go to Graceland, I want to thank Georgann and Pat for the pictures they took at the Memphis Zoo.

We then returned to Gold Strike for dinner and free evening time.
Day 3: A magnificent morning sky taken from our hotel room.
A breakfast buffet and 4-hour stay at Resorts Casino. Ron, the best greeter in Tunica, met our bus to pass out buffet coupons and players cards.
Of course, pictures are not allowed in the casinos, but I did get a sneak peek shot as we were waiting for the bus to depart Resorts. It looks like blue was the "color of the day".
The afternoon took us to Roadhouse and Horseshoe. No pictures.
Day 4: Today was the day to pack our bags and depart for home after having a breakfast buffet at Gold Strike. Below is a picture of an amazing sky at one of the rest stops.
I know we had one nice winner on the bus and, hopefully, more than that who kept it a secret!
