Nao Santa Maria

Santa Maria, Beaufort, SC 
I've seen the Nao Santa Maria three times. Once, many years ago with along with the Nina and Pinta in the Charleston Harbor. A few years later I was in New York City up inside the top of the statue of Liberty and watched them sail past us. This time I caught a ride down to Beaufort, SC and happened to see the Santa Maria docked at the waterfront park yesterday. It amazes me each time how very small the ship is.

What a beautiful ship.

Oh, it's teensy, innit? How adorable! Makes me want to book it for a champagne cruise 'round the harbor (only if an attack by handsome pirates is included with the deal, of course!).
