I feel so bad that i didn't get up to do my chore. Now my dad won't be able to go on the Fur Trade Trip. I have to take lead and sign myself up to do the Fur Trade Trip and make money so we will have a good life.
Keep paddling we have to make it shore!
We have just left St. Annes and we have been paddling for hours. My blisters are getting worse every time i paddle. I am getting so homesick. I just wish I could go back in time and fix My whole mess.
My first set of rapids were kind of hard if I do say so myself but I got through it. I fell in when we were trying to get the canoe to move and everyone laughed at me. I think I will do better next time because my blisters are healing after one of the crew mates gave me that deer skin to put on my paddle!
Once we got to Lake Superior the weather was so good we decided to go off and stop trolling on the shore and kind of go in the middle but that didn't go so well. The weather got so bad. The waves got so bad our boat got a leak and we were sinking fast. Our boat basically sunk so we had to jump out and get all the goods and start swimming to shore.It was bad.
Grande Portage looks so amazing! There´s so many men and so many goods to trade! I can´t belive I travled so many miles and come to the most wonderful place ever. The men are so nice. I have been getting used to this place because we are staying for a week. I can wait to see wait else this place has!
I have returned to Lachine . I have made the decision to sign up again next year but the pay will just for myself since my dad will me better. Being a Voyageur has had its up and downs but I can't wait to do it again!
