Back to the Fort the next day for Rendezvous. Noah didn’t like the soldiers. I explained it was all “sort of a game” and that they weren’t really angry with each other. This didn’t help much. For the rest of the day, whenever we saw soldiers approaching, we’d have to make a detour before the “bad soldiers” got to us.
We saved the wigwams for on the way out. All the kids sprawled out on the wigwam floor on animal skins for a while, resting. I always love the exchanges we have here with the “Ojibwe”, who camp outside the fort, as they did historically. One of the Ojibwe leaders came in and talked to us for quite a while. He was such a great character. Rested, everyone wandered out. This girl was fabulous with the kids. She taught them an Ojibwe song honoring the eagle. I always wonder what all these people do in “real life”, but seldom do they break character. I am always impressed by everything about the whole historical park. The kids LOVE going there. So anytime you (friends, blog readers) visit us here…. we’d love to share the fort with you.
“Farewell! Have a safe paddle!”
