Living Under The 520 Bridge

Anybody who commutes in Seattle is perfectly aware that people live under the overpasses, but not too many drivers get a good look under the 520 bridge. The Seattle Times has a photo gallery and article about William "Three Stars" Kaphaem, who lives in a tarp-covered boat under the 520 with his dog Lulu. It's certainly a precarious living situation, but he's learned to deal with passersby by anchoring his boat offshore when he leaves for the day (to deter thieves) and washing his clothes at his daughter's apartment.
