Click image to enlarge.
There's a statue of a man named Tristan de Luna near the water in downtown Pensacola, FL. Tristan is credited with founding Pensacola. Every American student has learned that St. Augustine is the oldest city in the United States, but Pensacolans would argue that point. Before St. Augustine was settled, Tristan and his cohorts settled in Pensacola. A vicious hurricane swept through the area, however, and they gave up and moved on. By the time they came back to re-settle, St. Augustine had been founded.

This picture is not so much about Tristan, though. He was just kind enough to pose for me so I could create this scene. I had a deeper meaning in my mind than that.
