Historical Society Launches Bark Canoe

Howard Kimewon has built a birch bark canoe for the Michilimackinac Historical Society, working on the project in St. Ignace and on Mackinac Island. He launched it Saturday, September 30, off Windermere Point. Here, Mr. Kimewon (left) and John Perault paddle the birch bark canoe off Mackinac Island. A small crowd gathered at Windermere Point and cheered as the canoe glided through the water. In the distance are (from left) the West Breakwall, the Round Island Passage, and a Sheplers ferry.
