Woman Quit Her Job And Went Sailing
34 year-old Liz Clark, a former bartender and a self-proclaimed â€œshe-pirate,â€ quit her job in San Diego, California in 2006 and has been sailing around the world since. She was offered a Cal 40 sailboat with only one condition: she had to document all her adventures. Naturally, â€œCaptain Lizzyâ€ took this opportunity. In 2013 she welcomed aboard a 6-month old kitten that she rescued. Now the two of them are inseparable and share a life full of adventures.
1.Clark was given a Cal 40 sailboat on the condition that she would document her adventures around the world.
Â Â Â Â Â 2.In 2013, she welcomed a 6-month-old kitten that she rescued aboard and named her Amelia
Â 3.The feral kitten was skinny and hungry but Clark saw aÂ â€œcommanding lioness air and carefree bravadoâ€ in her
4.â€œShe has adapted to living surrounded by waterâ€
5.â€œShe has to go out of a cat comfort zone oftenâ€
6.â€œBut I think she now understands that I will keep her safe and she will have a lot of fun in the endâ€
8.Amelia also loves hiking with Clark!
9.As well as enjoying the pleasures of SPA togetherâ€¦
10.She sure has a similar thirst for adventure as her human!
11.â€œIt was petrifying to leave the safety and security of the dock and my friends and familyâ€
12.â€œI didnâ€™t know if I would be capable of captaining a boat this big and managing all that goes into a trip where youâ€™re off the gridâ€¦â€
13.â€œâ€¦but I knew I had to try or Iâ€™d always regret itâ€
14.â€œWhen I left I didnâ€™t know how Iâ€™d make money, and I donâ€™t come from a wealthy family or anything, like many people assumeâ€
15.â€œBut I feel rich when I look up at that night sky and breath the fresh ocean air and leap into the sea each morningâ€
16.â€œShe makes Swell [the yacht] feel much more like a homeâ€
