1984 Algoma Central Railway postcard to Catherine -Oct.6


1984 HH & Jean in the Mackinac Grand Hotel - Oct.
(Not on the train but during the same trip.)
 Algoma Central Railway Postcard -mailed 1984 to the Morgans.  Caption: Home Again – Agoma Central's tour train near the outskirts of Sault Ste. Marie after its daily trip into the wilderness of Algoma Central Country.
10/6/84 Hi! 
[written by HH] On this train to Hearst [?] Ontario, where winter has already come.  The fort for lodge [food for lunch??] was great & some great views of Lake Superior en route.

We are getting along fine w/ the Goodings & heading now for Mackinac Island – also called the "Bermuda of the North."

[written by Jean] Thought we might see some wild animals (Hearst is the Moose Capital of the World) but only perhaps some deer at a distance.

Thanks for the mail, nice picture of the library.  Get $1.30 for our U.S. $, but gas is $2 a gallon.

Love, Mother & Dad

food for lunch might possibly be fall foliage? Hard to make out for sure!

I agree, Mary. Fall foliage looks and sounds right! Good deciphering.
