The Nina and the Pinta


Handcrafted replicas of two of Christopher Columbus' three ships -- the Nina and the Pinta --
visited Tin City on Naples Bay last week.  The ships were open for paying visitors,
but I just stood on the bridge and took a picture.

A bit of history that changed the world.

Two beauties Jack, I prefer to take shots from afar also . Too close quarters for moi :)

I would have done the same. They are fun to look at from this point of view. Makes you wonder how they ever made the trip.

That would be something I'd be drawn to. Terrific shot, Jack!

Always love seeing sailing ships, and especially squared rigged classics. Those who made that trip were certainly hardy souls. Great to see the recreated ships.

I love seeing tall masted ships. Those look surprisingly small but still beautiful.

I also like seeing sailing ships of all sorts. I had heard that the Santa Maria fell off the edge?? Is that true??? :)

Those old ships can be really interesting. The rigging is pretty amazing.
