The replica of the 65-foot-long, 18-foot-wide Nina was built by about 20 men by hand without electricity or modern tools, according to Nina captain Stephen Sanger. Nina construction took 2½ years and was completed in 1991. Replicating the 85-foot-long, 24-foot-wide Pinta took about three years and was completed in 2005. Stephen Sanger said some electrical tools were used. The replica Pinta was built bigger than the original to accommodate up to 100 passengers for day trips.
And because I was such a horrible Dad that I’d never shown my daughter Hot Waters, or taken her to shoot the Lighthouse at night….
I was up at Lakeview (first time in a loooong time) trying to do something new, and was lucky enough to catch this storm moving in.

I don’t like the fact that everything is dead, dormant or hibernating this year. Coupled with the weather, temperature and work schedule, I don’t head out too much. I know, whine-whine-whine, right? So, I’m digging though my folders and found this set that I took last year in March. I promise to have new stuff soon. Even if it means going outside.
Hope Everyone Had a Safe and Happy 4th!!
