Pensacola Florida. A Tall Ship.

When we stopped by the waterfront park commemorating the landing of Spanish explorer Tristan de Luna in 1559, we noticed a tall sailing ship lying at anchor in the bay.

This turned out to be the Peacemaker, based out of Savannah, and in port through the middle of MarchWikipedia has a pretty complete story of the ship and its origins in Brazil.  There is a YouTube video of the ship at sea, too.

The wheelhouse looks very comfortable.  Lots of Mahogany.

And the captain seemed very pleased to be with the ship.
