This weekend we are going on a mini vacation..we are planning on going to the Irish Fair in St.Paul Minnesota and while we are there we are probably going to go to the Mall of America. Even though this is by no means the first time at the mall and then on our way home we are stopping in Hudson WI to take a gander at the replicas of the Nina and the Pinta, no Santa Maria though. I hope to take lots of pictures of the ships and post them here. Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend!

Columbus Ship Replicas Come To Wisconsin
Replicas of two of Christopher Columbus’ ships, the Nina and Pinta, will be visiting Hudson, Wisconsin.
The “Nina” was built without power tools. Archaeology magazine calls it “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.” The “Pinta” was recently built to accompany the “Nina.”

Columbus sailed the orignal “Nina” across the Atlantic on his three voyages to the New World beginning in 1492. The “Pinta” was on the first voyage, as was the “Santa Maria.”
