I have used the solar shower many times now, but I recently became aware of a different shower that doesn’t require the sun, ” The Lunar Shower”.

Im not sure if I would call it late in the evening or early in the morning when we woke up to a pouring rain.  Our dinghy is tied to the stern/back of our boat. Our little outboard motor is mounted on our dinghy.  I have never heard it said that drenching a motor in water was a good thing.  So Barry and I diligently went out in the elements to save our motor.

 About ten minutes later we were soaked to the bone, but there we stood crouched beneath our dinghy that was now stowed on top of the cock pit, Mission accomplished.

If I were to compare the two types of showers I would say that they are both refreshing but the lunar shower has just a little more kick. 

We learned a valuable  lesson.  When the weather report calls for rain, it is best to prepare before that time comes.


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.
