That Christopher Columbus was a swell guy~

Because if I were him, there is NO way I'd be sailing the ocean blue...

We visited- ok, drove by- these replicas of the Nina and Pinta over the weekend~
pretty neat, but we were expecting monstrous ships- definitely not something a bit more than a row boat :)
Yes, I am exaggerating just a bit :) It does give you an appreciation to the hardships the early explorers surely faced~
and hopefully make you appreciate the luxuries we so quickly take for granted today in America. If you want to see if the Nina and Pinta will be docked in your area~ check out the Columbus Foundation's Site here.

The kids and I stopped by to see them too and came to the same conclusion---NO WAY we'd sail across a sea in those things. Josh said he'd go as far as the other side of the river LOL!!
