View from below: Isaac McFarlane, 4, peers out the porthole of the Wind Spirit, moored at the Coeur d’Alene Resort on Saturday during the 2012 Coeur d’Alene Wooden Boat Show. The Wind Spirit was a hit with children because owner Dan Mimmack, of Sandpoint, invited them to board and play on his small-scale replica of a 17th-century frigate, which he purchased from an ad and restored. The show, featuring runabouts, cruisers, sailboats, rowboats and canoes, continues today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. along the floating boardwalk around the resort.
