Pinta and Niña in Muskegon

This was too cool. Seriously! Unexpectedly, I felt giddy like a little kid. A couple of the Columbus-voyage replicas sailed into port.

Either we were being invaded by Spain — or Muskegon was discovered.

I spent some time chatting with the crew and hearing some of their stories. Some interesting tidbits; while they are “at sea” on the great lakes, they are close enough to shore to frequently have mobile phone coverage.

While in port they sleep in the ships. And they do make it into town to find the local restaurants and pubs. They are sailors, right?
