Liz Plots the Course and Takes the Helm

When Liz is not working on tugboats, she is in school at Pacific Maritime Institute. The night I arrived in Seattle she diligently pored over her rolls of sea charts, plotting her course in preparation for a solo navigation of the Shetland Islands in a tugboat simulator, which concluded the term. After rocking that task the next day, Liz put on her flowers to wear and took the helm of her trusty land boat Land Cruiser (which doubles as a mobile home base and storage unit during her nomadic stints on shore), and drove us home to California.
