Ah, the wonder of kids! Wandering the Monterey waterfront Weds afternoon, I showed Coop (in orange) and cousin Ben the famed Wild Wave, once one of the most popular albacore tuna boats on the West Coast.
Unfortunately, the once proud vessel has been mothballed for years now and is catching nothing but dust and weeds.
That didn’t bother the kids at all. In fact, they were so impressed with the Wild Wave that they stared up at it in awe for a long moment.
Then, when I told them that my good pal Mike Baxter used to captain the boat, Coop got a huge smile and said…
“Mike Baxter is the coolest guy in the world!!!” :)
