Farewell, Kalakala - A Drone’s-Eye View

The news that the Kalakala would be scrapped by the end of the month came as no surprise, but it's still sad to see an iconic piece of Puget Sound history dismantled. If you never got the chance to see the historic ferry up close in person, chances are now you never will.

This drone-filmed tribute video isn't quite like seeing the ferry in person, but it gives you a good idea of the Kalakala's contidion in her final days...

Thanks to Aaron Pedersen (Fly Tacoma on YouTube) for capturing this moment in history.

Good work. And it’s not hyperbole to use Chopin here.
