News from Dawn Simula this morning. She last heard from Erik at Lakewood Station, 8 miles from Duluth. She shared this enjoyable little family story:
“My daughter Shannon and a couple of friends were returning from Duluth when they thought they saw him. At the time he was just a small “RED” speck on the water.
So, after jumping up and down and yelling “Erik” he finally spotted them! He paddled to shore and had a very nice visit (she hadn’t seen him since he left Grand Marais) with the girls. Shannon was ecstatic to see him and Kitigan.
He plans on getting an early start this a.m. I will let you know where he ends up. The
weather looks to change again, so we will see!”
ADDENDUM: We’ve just learned that entering Duluth under the lift bridge did not go well. Erik is OK. But it was a rough spot to be in a canoe today.
