I am leaving home to become a voyager because I am tired of working on the farm doing the same chores every day. I want to be free and have an adventure. I am sad to leave behind my mother and farm animals. My father is a voyager too but I dont want to canoe with him.
I am so tired and my blisters won't stop bleeding. I miss my mom and want to go home. I wish I hadn't signed on!
Today we got to the rapids! Ahh! We decided to run the rapids even though I said we should portage but I guess we did loose a day resting.
Today we are crossing lake Superior! We decided to stay safe along the shore lines.The paddling was rough but I'd say we were lucky with the weather and out timing was great!
I finally made it to Grand Portage!! I was so thrilled to finally see it in the distance. I was so excited when we saw it and everyone started paddling faster.
I decided to return to Lachine with my brigade because I really miss my family and I don't think paddling is for me. I did have a lot of fun but this experience is one I don't want to do again. I had a lot of fun this summer and getting to be outside exploring is what I am going to miss the most! But I really think I am better off being an ordinary farmer.
