On Oct. 7, a small wooden boat drifted ashore on Lake Superior, leaving locals with a puzzling mystery. The Apostle Islands National Seashore in Wisconsin, a U.S. National Parks service, said the red, white, and blue boat was found with a message inscribed on its hull.

“I am traveling to the ocean. Please put me back in the water. Will you send information on your whereabouts to, Lakewood School, Room 116 & 118 5207 N. Tischer Duluth, MN 53304,” read the tiny vessel.

According to a Facebook post from Duluth Public Schools, they were equally perplexed but discovered the boat is a lesson-turned-legacy project from two teachers, Brenda Schell and Bonnie Fritch. In 1993 and 1994, the duo released boats for a lesson on the book “Paddle-to-the-Sea.”
