                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Merle is president of the Center for Emergent Diplomacy in Santa Fe, NM. She has 7 grandchildren. John is a retired Sandia National Laboratory research engineer. He is also a master carpenter and grandfather of 2. John built the porch, the treehouse, and the beautiful rowboat. Merle and John visit their home on SJI whenever their busy lives permit.

                      Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
                      SJI is the perfect complement to the desert beauty of our home in Santa Fe, NM. We love the green lushness of the island and the sunny summer weather with absolutely perfect temperatures!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Last summer a bald eagle perched on the side of our pond lips smacking as he watched a pair of ducks circling. Hiking with the grandkids at American Camp we usually spot several baby fox kits peering at us from their hiding places in the prairie. The kids love to crawl out on the log over the pond where we've screwed in an iron puzzle that they work hard to solve. Our front yard is perfect for softball and we love to play badminton in the afternoons by the pond. A float and row on the pond at the end of the day is one of our rituals.
