Now why would a marina in Washington be named after John Wayne ? Well, the link tells us the land once belonged to his family. The Duke liked sailing his boat into Sequim Bay. Apparently when the family learned of the need for another marina in this area, they donated the land to the Port Authority. I like going there. I’m not a great sailor, but I do love getting out on the water and enjoying the quiet. When invited, I rarely say no. We do have to be careful in this area. A fog bank can roll in very quickly.
