Storyboard Text

  • 'Why do you have to leave honey?'
  • "To get our family more money, because I get money in advance, and I got hired. I know I dont want to leave either."
  • I am holding up pretty well after leaving St. Annes, my brigade is okay I guess, most of them are pretty nice. I feel sore, very sore, I have blisters on my hands. I am not homesick surprisingly, sometimes I get sea sick when the water is rough.

  • This was such a wild, crazy, experience! My whole brigade was thinking we would have to portage, but we didn't!  WE made it through with only a few scraces and dents, but nothing too big.
  • It is very rough and tiring crossing the big lake. We are hugging the shoreline because it is very windy and hard in the middle. I am so afraid the waves are going to dash our canoe or even worse, tear it apart!
  • The trading post is so cool! There is so many people. In the distance it didn´t seem so special, but when I got here I was amazed at how cool it is. I wish I could stay here forever, with my family. I met so many nice people. I don´t want to leave! 
  • I decided I am going to head back to Lachine with my brigade, I decided this because I miss my family, friends, and home. I am not sure if I will sign on next spring. Being a voyageur made me mature, strong, confident, have responibility, and have more care. It is hard to winter in a canoe because if your are not prepared you can get hurt or die. I can not wait until I get home!
