The Nina and Pinta docked in Peoria today on the riverfront next to the Spirit of Peoria. The Nina has been here before, but this time the Pinta is visiting, too. The Pinta is 20 feet longer than the Nina. We didn't go aboard the boats, as we had seen the Nina on Columbus Day a few years ago. The Nina was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools in Bahia, Brazil, in 1992, the 500th anniversary of Columbus' sailing the ocean blue!
