Replicas of Columbus' ships, the Nina and the Pinta are currently docked in Muskogee.
AD and I made a trip down to see them today.
Actually we made 2 trips - yesterday and today.
That's a lot of driving miles but it was well worth it.
Yesterday we did some shopping in Owasso and Claremore as we made our way to Muskogee. And because we didn't know exactly where we were going, by the time we got to where the ships were, everything was shut down and it was, well, it was dark.
I was very disappointed.
AD said we could try again on Saturday. But after listening to the weather forecast he said we'd better go today as there is a 90% chance of rain tomorrow. So we drove back down today.
There were lots of school children there to see the ships and learn a bit of history.
That was a very good thing because we were able to listen to the guides too. Those kids sure had some great questions too!
The ships are in Muskogee through the 7th, then they'll be sailing off to Florida.
If you ever have a chance to see these replicas, my advice is to do it!
