This morning I made a big mistake. Instead of helping my dad chop the wood which is my job I laid in bed being lazy and he split his thumb open with an ax! Because of this he psychically cant' be a voyageur. This is a problem. we could be struggling for money very soon, and its all my fault.
Its been a few hours since I've been on ground. I'm not really sure if I've made the right decision. I know I need to help out with my family but I am aching and i have so many blisters oh how am I going to paddle for so long.
The rapids was a crazy!! Slash Splash Splash that's all you hear, feel, see...it was kind of cool but also scary. We paddled so hard everyone pulled there own weight. I was scared that I wasn't doing enough but I was trying so hard. I hope I can last the rest of the trip before giving up because I am hurting A LOT.
Before La Londe decided it was okay to cut the shore and go around it everything was going so good, beautiful weather, calm lake, it was nice because I finally started getting in the hang of paddling but then...BAM!! It was a disaster!! Furious waters splashed, rocks, terrible weather... It was horrible! everyone was struggling to paddle. This is crazy.
We finally made to the Grand Portage! Its not what I was expecting... I thought it was a big castle by the way my father explained.It was a 1 story log cabin. But besides that i am so glad i made it here!!
WE MADE IT HOME!! after a long paddle for 1,400 miles and three months we finally made it. I started walking down to the trail path that leads to my house. My father was so happy yo seeme!I am so glad to be home.
