We checked out and headed north to Savannah. Once again we avoided the Interstate roads, this time driving on a little travelled road usually with a speed limit of 65 mph that Tom finds less stressful. Then we reached Savannah which was crowded. Historic Savannah is known for its attractive layout which includes about 19 squares. These are delightful unless you have just arrived for the first time and want a parking space so you can look for somewhere to stay! We finally parked and found a Visitor's Centre where the assistant was most helpful - after he told us the town was full for the annual film festival. He found us a room at one of the old Inns in the Historic Centre. It was only after we checked in we found out the Inn is haunted. The next day we found out that the haunted room, which is above us, is so popular that you need to book it 6 months in advance. Having checked in we explored the district, returning reasonably early for the Inn's Happy hour, followed by dinner. We went to sleep once the people on the walking tours stopped taking photos of our building with the flashes coming in through our window.
