The Gordons are on a mission.

The Two Harbors family of four has been living a wandering life for the past decade. They’ve spent up to nine months at a time away from their home in Two Harbors, traveling the lakes and oceans in their sail boat. Last weekend they set sail on Lake Superior on their latest adventure, dubbed Sea Change.


“We love to sail, but we love to have purpose,” explained Katya Gordon, the matriarch of the family.
