My name is Edward I became a voyageur because my father got sick and died. I am leaving behind my family, my home, and all my friends.
I am feeling a little sad after we left St. Anne's church. I am getting along with my brigade well. My muscles are so sore and my blisters are killing me. I am felling a little homesick but I can not complain.
We chose to try and bare the deadly rapids. It was so harsh there where rocks and monster waves, it was massive.

It was dreadful crossing Lake Superior, we hugged close to the side but we still took on water we went over giant waves and hit some rocks that almost sunk are canoe.
I felt so relieved when I saw the trading post, and so happy because I knew that I had done it, it I made it to Grand Portage. The trading post was so much better then I expected.
I decided to return to Lachine and see my family, I decided to return to Lachine because I missed my family too much to stay longer. Being a voyageur was fun and I liked getting to know other people and going through deadly rapids. But now it is time to go home. I decided to go back next spring and have even more fun.
