Columbus Visits Pensacola

Replicas of the Pinta and the Maria are docked at Pensacola Bayfront.  How interesting it is to see these ships.   They are certainly nothing special - and you can't imagine crossing the ocean on these small ships.  Little space, no comforts - ugh!  But so interesting.

The masts are a puzzle of ropes.

Not me!  No way! No lack of sleep, blisters, and seasickness for me.    But it was great visiting the ships.   And then I went home and had a cup of hot coffee from our Keurig, sat in my comfy lazy boy chair, and later slept in my own bed.  And I did not even experience any seasickness!
