Here's a picture of centenarian, Bubbe or Granma Martha Miller and visiting Royal Spanish Navy training vessel, the De Elcano, in Pensacola.

Bubbe Martha Miller celebrated her 100th birthday in March of this year surrounded by loving family and friends. She is a venerable member of B'nai Israel Synagogue in Pensacola.

The Spanish tall ship was built in 1927 and has a complement of 74 officers, naval cadets and 14 able body seamen. This marks the third or fourth visit by the De Elcano to Pensacola. The ship will make only one other port of call in the US this summer. The vessel arrived on May 27th and has been open for daily tours and will depart on May 31st. On May 29th the crew and band of De Elcano joined US Navy representatives and band from the Naval Air Station to commemorate the victory of the Spanish over British forces during the Revolutionary War under Gen Galves. A descendent of Gen. Galves from Miami was present at the ceremonies.

Bubbe Martha was thrilled to revisit the De Elcano as she saw it when it visited Pensacola in 1951, when a descendant of explorer Christopher Columbus was Captain of the Spanish Training Ship.
