We live fairly close to the Golden Gate Bridge. A friend sent a link with a lot of great photos that I wanted to share with you:
Does anyone know the name of the battleship in #8? Since it was on the West Coast in ’36, it is likely it was part of the Pacific Fleet, and if it still was five years later, it is very likely to have been at Pearl Harbor in ’41.
I was on a 129th Rescue Wing’s Pave Hawk helicopter as it flew between the two spans of the GGB, and got to see some of their PJ’s train. Both were unforgettable and wonderful experiences.
My Beloved and I have a female friend who has worked as a painter on the GGB for many years, and still does. She’s shown to us some photos of her way up at the the tops of the towers and cables. She’s got some mighty big ovaries to do that work.
