Historically accurate replicas of Columbus’s ships, the Nina and the Pinta were docked in a nearby marina, so Emily and I took a tour yesterday. These ships will be traveling through the river systems, then down into the Caribbean for the winter and up the East coast and into the Great Lakes next year. They are staffed by volunteers who live on the ships. Pretty cool!
We have seen similar ships before—at Plimouth (the Mayflower) and at Jamestown. I am always surprised at just how small these ocean-crossing ships are!
