We visited one of our favorite places in Sequim today, the John Wayne Marina. We love to sit and watch the birds. We have done a couple of geocaches here and love to just walk and enjoy the beauty of the water and the blazing trees. It is also perfect for picnics.
John Wayne Marina was constructed in 1985 on 22 acres of land donated by the John Wayne family. John Wayne frequented Sequim Bay waters aboard the family yacht (the “Wild Goose”) and envisioned a marina in the scenic bay prior to his death.
Eventually, this vision became a reality under the ownership and auspices of the Port of Port Angeles.
Today, the marina features permanent and guest moorage, excellent marine services, a restaurant, showers, laundry and banquet facilities, and provides boat launch ramps, fuel facilities, public beach access, and picnic areas.
We have not eaten at their restaurant yet, but are planning to for a special event. We enjoyed just sitting and people and bird watching today. I went a little overboard taking the pictures of the trees today, they were so amazing I could not stop. :-) I hope you enjoy the pictures. Check back later for more from Washington.
