Viva España!

The Naval Museum in Madrid
My first mate Aimee and I are in Madrid at the moment and we were fortunate enough to be able to take time out for the Spanish Naval Museum.
 (editor's note: She isn't really my first mate, the details are complicated....oh never mind.)

A cannon circa 1492

A true spanish galleon design. I wished I could find a model like this with the sweeping decks

The Gallery on this model is fantastic.

Not Carry-on size.

Launches, not lifeboats.

Someone got lucky.

You think modern weapons are complex?

Hasta La Vista! 

What a piece of Junk

What are you saying dear?

Columbus: "What do you mean this isn't India? Ah left turn at Albuquerque I see..."

The Mother of the new world......

Taken in the Spanish/American war. We got Puerto Rico. Exchange rates have drasticly changed.
