Toy boat washes onto shores of Lake Superior 27 years after launch
Searching for rocks on the shores of Lake Superior in his hometown of Wisconsin, Mike and Lynn BeBeau found a red, white, and cloudy object looking in the sand.
At first, the couple thought it was a piece of wool. However, upon further examination, he realized that it was a wooden boat painted with paint and disappeared and deliberately ordered the following:
“I’m going to the beach. Please put me back in the water. Can you send more information to: Lakewood School Room 116 & 118 5207 N. Tischer Duluth, MN 53304, ”reads.

With unpleasant and high water levels, Mike and Lynn waited to bring the trip into the water instead of making a sunset and posting the story on television, which drew the attention of hundreds – including teachers at Duluth Public School.
“We like to take the narrow road, that’s what we are, we’ve always been,” Lynn told Free Press Monday. “You never know what you’ll see, you never know what you’ll find. This is a sudden turn of events. ”

Through magic and the mystery of film, Lynn connected with teachers Bonnie Fritch and Brenda Schell, who set up two boats on a trip to Brighton Beach in 1993-94 as part of a Paddle-to-the-Sea study, a 1941 children’s book written and Holling C. Holling.
“We made a map to sail across the Great Sea,” Fritch told Duluth Public Schools on Facebook. “Brenda’s friend made these boats for us and our classrooms and then I added the message to the floor.”
When one boat was spotted a year later, the other was on the water to be heard again, until 27 years later when Mike and Lynn found a wooden vessel on a remote beach near Apostle Island National Lakeshore near Eagle Island.
“I think the biggest carrier is that a small boat is on its way to the ocean, well, I think it has set its goal,” Lynn, 63, said. “It didn’t go to sea, but it did pass. It has been on its own journey and has reached many people and put a smile on their faces. Is there a better trip? And today, we need this. ”
Lynn – who loves to go out and walk with her husband – says their story is a lesson for people to be brave and to see where they live.
“People say, ‘Oh, I have nothing to do,’ Go out, people. Put on high heels and go out, ”he said. “There is so much to see, you just have to look.
“Sometimes it comes when you don’t want it, and that’s what happens to us. We did not go looking for a boat. He finds us. ”
