                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Lee grew up in Rhode Island, moved to California after marrying Bill Morris, lived in Germany 2 yrs, and England 7 yrs. After raising their 3 children in Southern california, they moved to beautiful, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. She loves to make music - singing and playing her grand piano and at times, the organ at her church. She still works full time and loves it, and can't imagine ever being retired! She belongs to several groups, Secretary in the St. John Yacht Club, singing with the St. John Singers, and her little children's picture books came out last year! The title is: 'Marshmellow Little Cloud Discovers an Island.' (St. John, of course.) And 'Marshmellow Little Cloud Discovers England.' And her husband Bill has written a terrific children's math book 'A Math Primer With Emphasis on Fractions And Primes.' You can get them from her, which she will autograph with the child's name, and a little message to the child. She is also a proud member of the MAM's Group! Meaning 'Middle Age Majorettes'. We practice a dance routine and march in the 4th of July parade, St Patrick's Day parade and a Christmas Parade - in interesting costumes! Come on out and enjoy our beautiful parades! She likes to work out and exercise.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
                      We bought our land in 1991, then moved here permanently in 1994, and built our beautiful home. Bill was an avid sailor, and the beauty, scenery and sailing here are spectacular! So, why NOT move here? Bill had many many years of wonderful sailing, up and down the island chains and delivering boats to and from the states. And we LOVE our spectacular 180 degree view! Sunsets every night, islands abound all around, boats going back and forth - it's never ending sight!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      We love the quiet, peacefulness and beauty of the area! St. Thomas is across the Pillsbury Sound, with lots and lots of islands all around in the beautiful shimmering blue sea! Sail boats, motor boats, fishing boats, ferries and car barges all going about their business in the Sound. The sun sets over St. Thomas and is gorgeous every night! We see lots of rainbows too. We have 180 degree views. FANTASTIC! Sunsets, rainbows - the whole works! (We often see the 'Green Flash' too, when the air is really clear!) I'll show you how to see it!! Also our house is at the END of the road! No cars or vehicles whizzing by!!
