Today we were treated to a sailboat ride with Sam Fisher. He is an awesome gentleman. His boat is everything we want our boat to be. There isn’t a spot of dirt on his boat and everything is shipshape and has its place.

We ask permission to come aboard and he grants it. He trailers his boat down from Pennsylvania every winter and cruises the keys and the Bahamas and then trailers her back home again. Wonderful man.

He said the Chesapeake Bay was a great Harbor from the Hurricanes in the summer. We might sail our boat north when we get her fixed up.

Today we bought a little motor for our dinghy. We are now mobile. Now Barry can get a job and I can take the kids wherever I need to while he is gone. We feel much better now. Though it does cut down on our exercise.

The next step is the inboard motor. Then we can take her anyway to clean her up and get a bottom job.


About Trisha Perkins

Hi, my name is Trisha Perkins. I was born in St. George Ut, and raised in many different places. California, Texas, Panama, North Carolina, and Utah have all been home for me. My family moved back to St. George Ut after my father left the army. I was home schooled most of my school years, then enrolled for long distance schooling from an accredited high school. I taught gymnastics and swimming for 3 years. Then I realized I wanted to learn more about children, because I didn't know enough about them and I wanted to be prepared for motherhood. I taught montessori preschool for one year, then I went to a summer camp in New Mexico to teach horse back riding. Now I have to back up a little. A couple of my friends had gone to this same summer camp to teach the year before and one of their friends from camp tagged along with them back to St. George. Here enters the Pioneer. My life would never be the same. I tapped into a soul that I didn't know the voltage of. I met Barry Perkins. He proposed to me while scuba diving off of the Californa coast. We were married in the St. George temple on October 16th 2004. We have always wanted to give our children the best education. Leadership education! We wanted to travel and let them experience different cultures and countries and read great books and be a united family. So here we are starting off on a journey of a lifetime.
