El Galeón at Alexandria

Photo by Patrick Jones. Alexandria, VA. 12 Nov 2016.
A year ago we toured the French replica ship The Hermione when it visited the Alexandria Waterfront. With perfect blue skies as the backdrop, yesterday we toured the Spanish ship El Galeón. My Dad would have loved this. The 17th century replica was built between 2009-2010 at Huelva, Spain. Perhaps this is the type of ship my Spanish ancestors sailed on before arriving in Mexico and Chile.
