The Nina and the Pinta

Last week we had a little pre-Columbus Day field trip. The Nina and Pinta replicas were in town, and we joined some fellow homeschoolers for a tour. It was very interesting. I was a little shocked at how small the ships were, considering the voyage that they took. Our guide shared a little history with us about the ships, the voyage, Columbus, and navigation at the time. Here are a few pictures from our visit.


  1. Love the picture of your "crew"...very sweet!

  2. LOVE the pic where Nolan is "helping " kellen smile! G and G

  3. We were able to see the replicas a couple of years ago. Like you, I was shocked at how small they were. There's no way I'd have crossed the Atlantic in one of those!
