Its Okay mom I will only be gone for a little while.
I became a voyageur because my dad chopped his finger and couldn´t work so I had to make money for the family. I would miss my dog Pepper and I leave behind my dad,my mom, and my sister.
I wasen't feeling so great. Everytime I would paddle on the canoe my bones and my blisters would get worse everytime. And I would get homesick missing my family and I would also feel homesick wanting to go home to see my family.
I did what i needed to do. They thought i couldn´t do it. I did the portage. It was hard I had to go through all the pain to get here. It was very hard I got a ton of blisters and my hand was very sore. The ride was so crazy water was splashing everywhere.
Crossing Lake Superior was amazing! But sometimes we would get water in the boat and I was afraid that the boat would break. We cut through this bay called Michipicoten to save 22 miles of rowing. It was raining and it was very cold.
I am so happy we are here! It took so long. It was hard work but now we have arrived. It felt good to see the Grand Portage in the distance.
I decided to head home. I missed my family and I liked paddling with everyone and so I decided to sign up for another season for paddling. I loved seeing my family when I got home.
