Once all was secured, we took off to explore some more. Within sight of the Quest we found life sized replicas of Columbus’ Pinta and Nina ships. We opted to climb aboard the Nina, supposedly the favorite of Columbus. These two ships are an educational traveling armada with many volunteers that give of their time to man them.
Our next adventure involved catching the city bus #15 that would take us to the National Tow Truck Museum. Having seen a segment on Sunday Morning about this unique little gem, we were unable to resist. Ernest Holmes invented the first tow truck and began manufacturing them here Chattanooga. The museum houses 17 beautifully preserved tows and scads of towing memorabilia, from toys to needlepoint, to quilts.
