Historic Traffic on the Okeechobee Waterway
There have certainly been times when I’ve felt as if the Okeechobee was a “secret Waterway.” However, Captain Vince must have thought he had wandered into a time warp, when he witnessed the vessels pictured below!
Upon exiting the Ortona Lock (westbound) on the Okeechobee WW on April 13,2010, the Nina (65′) and Pinta (85′) passed us entering the lock. It certainly took us by surprise when we got our first glance at them and almost felt like we were in a time warp. They had departed Ft. Myers that morning headed to the east coast to continue their tour. Check it out on www.thenina.com.
The photos were taken with a Canon Power Shot A570.
The first photo is the Nina and the second photo is the Pinta.
