King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain visit Pensacola

King Juan Carlos I of SpainMy son and I got to take part in a unique celebration. We were privileged to hear the King of Spain, in person, give a speech in Pensacola, Florida. Pensacola claims the distinction of being the first European settlement in North America. The King and Queen of Spain came to town to participate in the activities for the celebration of Pensacola’s 450th anniversary.

I recorded the speech by the Governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, and his Highness, King Juan Carlos I.

Of course the audio is not perfect, but I am glad I got what I did and am able to preserve it. A very neat memory.

Interesting side note. I saw several people carrying around Greek flags and signs printed in Greek. Queen Sofia is from Greece.
