Isle Royale - Day 27
We were delighted to experience glassy calm Lake Superior for the entirety of our ride. We easily hugged the north shore and watched the topography change and the high cliffs of the north shore appear. Having hiked the Minong, we were able to picture every single section and what the view looked like from the island in contrast to from the water. It was a reflective trip, thinking through each day, each section, each struggle from camp to camp. Looking out at Canada, the water was glassy. Making our way through the Amyloid Channel, we were able to see the areas we had paddled 3 years earlier from Birch Island, around the Indian Head and into the Five Fingers area. Rounding Blake Point on such a calm day seemed like such an easy effort and made us question whether we could ever paddle it. Looking into Tobin Harbor, we were proud of the distance we had made in our kayaks the week before, taking our kayaks almost to Scoville Point. As we neared Snug Harbor, the First Mate came to the back deck where we were sitting and asked if we’d like the honor of blowing the horn to signal our arrival. We jumped at the chance and worked our way up to the captain and the helm. He gave us directions, and we signaled a long, low horn into the harbor. We were beginning the final stage of our month, and it was beginning to be bittersweet.
