The Nina and Pinta

 

The boys and I met up with some friends to tour the reproductions of Columbus’ beloved Nina and the Pinta as it made its way up the Atlantic coast.

The Nina – way smaller than I could’ve imagined.  I cannot believe 26 people sailed on this across the ocean! :

The Pinta- slightly bigger than the Nina, but not as large as the original boat:

Families in the Midwest, don’t think that you are left out!  The ships are headed up the Hudson River, through the Erie Canal, and Great Lakes will make their way down the Mississippi River this fall.

You can check out their ports of call:  http://www.thenina.com/schedule.html

We were able to see them when they were in Camden. Pretty cool!
