This Week on the island 03/28/2017



 ‘This Week on the Island’ is written by Doug Bennett and is an update to friends about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those parts that are lies.
The Weather: Beautiful all week. On White Street Pier looking toward Cuba.
Took Teeki back to Dr. Doug’s in Marathon. Seems she has kennel cough. Hope to be better in 10 days after taking her drugs.
Spring Break is still happening. They are checking ID’s at the gate. I am too old to get in.
Cruise ship horned blasted. Tourist headed back to the ship for the remainder of their cruise.
The Key West Trolley carrying the tourist around town.
Count Von Cosel, not his real name, became famous in Key West for sleeping with a dead woman for years. Google him. It is unbelievable.
Key West, You have got to love it

This Week on the Island 03/19/2017



 ‘This Week on the Island’ is written by Doug Bennett and is an update to friends about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those parts that are lies.
The Weather: Cold this week. Had some days that it didn’t get above 70 degrees.  The wind blew most of the week making it feel even colder.
No book this week. I like to sit in my rocking chair on the front porch and read. It has been too cold.
This week started with Daylight Savings time.
We had the ending of the 2017 Iditarod. I like it because of the huskies.
March 14 was Pi day (3.14). Make mine Key Lime.
Then there was St Pat’s day at what used to be Finnegan’s Wake now Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar.
St. Pats on Duval at Irish Kevins.
And spring break continues at Dante’s.
We leave you with the sunrise over the bight at Conch Republic Seafood looking toward Schooner Wharf Bar.
Key West you have got to love it

Sunset 6 March looking across the bight toward Conch Republic Seafood.
Fire on Duval at Petronia this week.
 Spring Break, here in Key West is from the first of March until Easter Weekend. Easter varies and is at the end of April this year so we will have about 8 weeks of Spring Breakers.
Spring Break at Dante’s
Spring Break on the beach
We end this week with a Key Deer crossing the finish line. I think it didn't run the whole race.
