July 31 Sun. Fine, bright, cool morning. After breakfast we took a long walk on deck. It's a nice deck to walk on, round and round. I read "Anne" some later. The shores of Superior are very high and bold and wooded - and the water so blue - and the island astonishing. I was so amazed I didn't even take pictures - at Pie Island I began but pictures give no idea. It was at least a thousand feet high - with a sheer precipice half the way up - the big white lighthouse looks like a dot. Got acquainted with a little lady from Duluth who says better views yet all from the smaller boats coming up to Pt. Arthur & back form Duluth where the fishermen's hamlets are - and where one can look down and see schools of white fish in the blue clear water. We went into Pt. Arthur facing a stiff gale and clouds were beginning to gather. The dock was crowded with queer people - Northern Canadians mostly - many apparently just from church. We staid a long time. I sat on deck listening to a man who'd been to Central America telling stories of it to a rather unappreciative audience of two men and a woman - (They sat at our table afterward). I also watched a private yacht, anchored opposite - and the owner and quest (apparently) sitting on deck till the rain drove them into the pilot house. We were having lunch when the boat at last pulled out - and then we spent a long time on deck - (tho' it was very showery)
