On May 26, 2012, the 79-year-old battleship Iowa is towed just beyond the Golden Gate Bridge and out into the ocean on its final voyage to Southern California and its permanent home as a floating museum on the San Pedro waterfront. (Don Bartletti, Los Angeles Times / May 26, 2012)
Two pretty good videos.
Somehow it seems kind of sad that this once great battleship leaves on her final voyage alone. It was less than a week ago that she was to leave as part of a parade of ships under the Golden Gate Bridge, but because of a little rough weather that she would have in her prime handled with ease had to have her good-bye party docked at her temporary home in the Port of Richmond.
