Since we weren’t going very far today, we had a pancake breakfast. We cleaned everything, packed up, and started paddling. I wasn’t looking forward to the mile-long portage, but at least it was pretty much going to be the only thing we had to do today.

Actually, the portage didn’t seem as bad this time. We had discussed taking pictures at the flooded part of the portage. Unfortunately, I misunderstood what I was supposed to do. Dad wanted to take a picture of me walking through it with the canoe. Instead, I took the canoe all the way to the other end of the portage and then walked back for a pack. So, instead of getting a picture with the canoe, we just got pictures carrying packs. It was fun and actually made the portage enjoyable.
