Father cuts his finger off. I decide that I need to become a voyageur, not my father.
I make it to St. Annes, which is a place where you worship. I left a donation, and now I don't know were I'm heading! The people in my brigade are mean, except for a kid who's in my school. My muscles ACHE and I have so many blisters. I miss my family a lot and I'm kind of homesick.
We make it to the rapids and it is hard! We decide to go through the rapids and I got a rope cut through my hands! It hurt a lot! The water was very cold. It felt refreshing at first, but my feet got numb! It was a harsh and wild ride.
We are now crossing Lake Superior! The big later was fine until a huge storm came along. The storm was TREACHEROUS! We decided to save some time by cutting across a huge dip in the lake because we were sticking to the shoreline but that was a mistake because that was when the storm hit!
We finally make it to Grand Portage! The journey was long and hard, but we did it! It was very exiting to see the trading post for the first time. There was also this girl who invited me to dance and she said that a lot of the girls like me because of my muscles.
Well, it is time to leave Grand Portage. I decided that I am going to go back to Montreal
