Just had a group return from Newport Beach in California. They had a great trip! The weather was perfect; literally perfect!!! And the agenda took advantage of that with an outdoor pool reception, outdoor dining, Segway tour, hiking, golf, bicycling.
But perhaps one of the most authentic of Newport Beach experiences was a dinner cruise onboard The Wild Goose. The Wild Goose was a 136-ft. US Navy Minesweeper converted into a yacht that John Wayne (Duke) purchased in 1962. The yacht has been described as “the central hub of John Wayne’s voracious social life” and became a powerful force in his life, for such a long time, that it remains famous today. A small bit of fame and history that this area is renowned for.
