  9. I miss living on Vancouver Island, we used to see the replica sail ships around Victoria quite often. I have never seen the Santa Maria though! And what a wonderful harbor to see it in.

  11. Now if I remember correctly this boat was docked in Chicago downtown area at Navy Pier, and people did take rides on it. I saw it from my brother's boat. Truly it was definitely awesome. Thanks for sharing!

  12. He came HERE in THAT? Brave soul (but we thank him ...) In southern Virginia: Jamestown, Williamsburg, Richmond area, one can see many similar replicas and board them, hard to believe, seeing the conditions inside that they traveled far and wide.

  19. When I was a teenager, my parents took the family to visit my mother's sister's family just outside of Williamsburg, Virginia. I remember we got to see Columbus' replica ships. I think all three where port side and we were able to tour one of them but that was too long ago for to remember which one. It was a fun experience. The boats were small, much smaller than I had envision ships that sailed the ocean blue to the new word would be but then that probably was big in those days. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Have a joyful holiday season!
