In my last post I forgot to mention Luxuli’s generosity: she brought over squid ink pasta which she shared with Travalon and me for lunch on Saturday, and after our canoe/boat ride, she treated us and Hardingfele to a quick drink at the Nau-Ti-Gal.
Richard Bonomo has returned from Isle Royale. He went with the Single B-Boy, Handy Woman, and another woman from Slow Food. He said I should change Handy Woman’s name on this blog to Superwoman, because she is so organized. He says he was the slow one on their hikes, but she says they went at a faster pace than she would have liked. The other woman stopped to eat berries all the time. As soon as they got to the lodge on the island, they saw a big bull moose, and one night there were moose out grazing near their tents; they didn’t see them, but they heard them. Rich went out to see what was going on, and a woman at another campsite signaled for him to be quiet, so he was. Unfortunately, he could not see the moose in the dark. It sounds like Isle Royale is the ideal place for Jilly Moose! There are also three wolves on the island, but our intrepid travelers didn't see any.
