EVERETT -- The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz left Naval Station Everett on Thursday, with sailors in dress uniforms ceremonially "lining the rails" of the deck as the ship was pushed out into Port Gardner.
Navy base spokeswoman Kristin Ching said the warship is on a "routine underway," but declined to give details, citing security concerns.
However, a spokeswoman for the Golden Gate Festival in San Francisco said the ship is expected to arrive Sunday in the San Francisco Bay as part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge.
