Full Circle

Author: Ruth

Early on September 19, 2009, Stephen, accompanied by eight fearless friends, paddled to the south end of the Mackinac Bridge. Returning to the spot where this extraordinary journey began 90 days ago completes his circumnavigation by canoe of Lake Huron.

More friends were waiting with champagne, cameras, high spirits, to congratulate him when he pulled his canoe onto the beach.

    Stephen, I am an 80 years of age woman who read a bit of your journey in our newspaper today. It called to me to use my computer to see what I could find on the web.
    I am so enthralled to see the beauty and your love of finding out about our beautiful earth. I pray that God blesses you and sends you out into discovering and exploring the awesome beauty that He has put here for us to discover.
    God’s great blessings upon you and yours,
    Vi
