Niña & Pinta

Replicas of Colimbus' ships are docked in Little Rock behind the Peabody hotel and will be there until early Tuesday morning.  (Take cash with you to pay the $7 entrance fee.)

The ships were much smaller than I expected them to be.

The ship was steered by the rutter stick (fancy name I forgot) not a steering wheel, which was invented 80 years after Columbus' death.

Below is a map of the fleet's voyages (not including trips to Spain.)

And our favorite: explosive devices.

What a fun day for JI! I had heard that the ships were quite small.
