John Wayne's RV Park-Sequim, Washington

We are staying at John Wayne's RV Park, in Sequim.  Yes, that John Wayne, the famous actor. John loved to sail his boat in this area of Puget Sound.  He purchased a large parcel of waterfront property here so that he and his family could spend time here. Prior to his death, he donated the land on the coast to the city of Sequim for the John Wayne Marina.  We are across the street in the campground, still run by his youngest son, Eric.  Sequim (pronounced SKWIM) is know as the Lavender Capital of America.  It is a nicely kept town on the sound, not far from another of our favorite places, Port Angeles.
Yes, the real John Wayne, "Duke"
