We already showed you our brush with ancient history, when the Niña and Pinta replicas floated past us in Alabama.
The Pinta is anchored behind me in the picture. It is actually 50% larger than the original, in order to accomodate some educational displays below-deck.
But wait, there’s more…did you know the earliest settlement in America by Europeans was on Santa Rosa Island off-shore from Pensacola? In the early 1500s. It didn’t last, so it tends to be passed over in favor of Jamestown or the Pilgrims.
