October storm helps reunite Park Point family with lost canoe

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Duluth, MN — As the Twin Ports saw Wednesday, Lake Superior can take a lot, but one Park Point family actually gained from the storm.

Several years ago, Paul Kellner’s blue canoe went missing. He thought maybe it washed away with the waves or was even stolen as it had been before.

However, as time went by, he and his family forgot about the canoe. That’s until Wednesday’s storm, when the very same canoe showed up right on the beach behind his house. His 13-year old son Owen was the one to find it.

“I dont know where the heck it’s been,” Kellner said. “It could have been aliens for all I know. The gods of the lake are giving us gifts. It’s just great.”

Kellner said the canoe looked just as he remembered it, so no clues there as to where it’s been all this time.

He says he’s not sure if it’s a coincidence or evidence of the Great Lake’s power.
