Day Four was very busy as well. The day started off with a lovely visit to Andalusia, a place at which both A. and I could have spent more time at (in addition to the two-and-half hours we spent there). After Andalusia, we went to Savannah, which was packed full of St. Patrick's Day events...and St. Patrick's Day tourists. We had great difficultly finding a place to park the car, but had an enjoyable enough time wandering about the historical district. At the time, we unknowingly strolled through Chippewa Square, the square in which the "bench scenes" of Forrest Gump were filmed.
We had some difficulty finding a place to stay for the night, and were forced to drive a bit out of the city. When we went back into the city for a haunted pub crawl that evening (which was overrated and overpriced, in my opinion), we again had to pay for our parking.
To make matters worse, I argued with the GPS in locating our hotel and directed us to the wrong Ramada Inn. When we finally reached our actual hotel and settled in for the night, we were exhausted and frustrated with the city of Savannah. Granted, it was beautiful, but it was a bit too crazy for the time that we visited.

The childhood home of Flannery O'Connor, located in Savannah. Though we were not able to go inside for a tour, we did take pictures of the building itself.
Savannah has a thing for red doors. Also, I will add that the reflection of the steeple in the window? That is the cathedral at which Flannery O'Connor attended mass. It is also seen below.
I told you: red doors.
