Sailed into Seattle

Yesterday we went down to Seattle to the Center for Wooden Boats, where we toured a replica of Columbus' ship, the Nina, that is in port for a few days. It was handmade in Brazil for the celebration of the 500th Anniversary of Columbus' voyage to the Americas and it tours all around now as a traveling museum. Amazing to me that it was only 93 feet long, and that the 27 man crew spent the entire voyage on deck, the hold being used for animals and supplies. Here's a pic of my nephew and my boys hamming it up on board.
