Hope you all had a wonderful holiday! It's been a while since I posted and that is because I traveled over to my sister's house, visited her family and my mother for Thanksgiving. We had a fabulous time! On Friday we went to go see the Columbus ships in Houma, Louisiana. They are not really the "real" Christopher Columbus ships, but they are built to what they would have been like back in the 1500's. Although the Pinta was slightly shorter and not as wide.

This was my first time being on a ship like this. For the most part it was parked so I couldn't really feel any movement but the Nina for some reason had more movement than the Pinta. I could really tell my sea sickness coming out on that one and it was just sitting there! How did they live?!
Also did you know that no one lived underneath the ship? They all slept and lived up on deck. Underneath they kept all the food, supplies, and wine.

It was really neat to experience a part of our history, especially on this weekend as we are thankful to be living in this beautiful land Columbus discovered (well parts of it).

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
