Meet The New Neighbor!

Look who just pulled in on the other side of Palafox Pier across from our marina:


Elcano3She’s the Spanish Navy training vessel Juan Sebastion Elcano, the third largest tall ship in the world. Pensacola has a special connection with Spain, as Spanish conquistador Don Tristan de Luna y Arellano established America’s first settlement here in 1559, a full six years before St. Augustine was settled, and 48 years before the English landed at Jamestown. If only it weren’t for that darned hurricane that hit the moment they stepped ashore…

I wonder if they’ll invite us over for a potluck this evening? If so, we’re going to need a bigger pot!
