There should be no talk of selling the John Wayne Marina.
What should happen is that port officials, Sequim officials and any other interested parties should get together and present a plan to the Wayne family about establishing a world-class museum about John Wayne’s history.
Get the state involved as road improvements would have to be made to handle the traffic.
Think ahead officials: A museum that would go with the marina.
Perhaps a new motel/hotel, camping grounds and motor home hook ups.
The future is endless.
Dining at or near the marina.
Think about Wayne’s history in movies that could be on display at a museum.
Perhaps a movie theater, also.
Think ahead of the future.
But if you build some of this, do it correctly.
Don’t go cheap.
Make this a destination that people (tourists) will come and tell their friends about that will make them want to come.
Logging has passed us by and will take a long time — if ever — to return.
The Pacific Northwest needs this type of attraction.
Think of the future.
