"The crew of the caravel "Nina" also saw signs of land, and a small branch covered with berries. Everyone breathed afresh and rejoiced at these signs." ~Christopher Columbus
Sunday we went to see the replicas of the caravels ther Nina and the Pinta in Pensacola. They were berthed at Palafox Pier on the ends of two finger piers. Unfortunately by the time we arrived, the sun was in ther worse possible position for photo taking. To get the sun to my back, I would have had to be able to walk on water--very cold and very deep water. So while we enjoyed touring the ships and talking with members of the crew, I came away with only a few decent pictures.
