This Week on the Island 11/12/2017



 ‘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: Same as last week. Beautiful. Sunny, white clouds and blue skies.   
This week was Off-Shore Power Boat Racing. It is a lot like NASCAR at sea. They race off shore from Mallory Square and out to Fort Zack.
That is Fort Zack to your right and Sunset Key to your left. Isn’t it wonderful how clear our water is?
I am sorry for being so short the last few weeks, but since my knee replacement I haven’t had a lot of energy. I go to physical therapy 3 times a week and I do exercises at home. I take Teeki to the dog park twice a day and for the first couple of weeks, I seemed to be tried all the time. I hope to do better.

 We miss you Captain Tony.
The buzzards and the Parrot Heads get to Key West about the same time each year. The Parrot Heads are a fun bunch and the buzzards usually signal the end of Hurricane Season.
The Parrot Heads had lot of activities all over the island including a Street Party outside Margaritaville on Duval Street.
Next week will be the Off-Shore Power Boats Racing.
We end this week with the flowers in bloom outside the front and back doors.

The Weather: Same as last week. Beautiful. Sunny, white clouds and blue skies.  Then the rain came for the weekend.
Sunrise over the dog park on Trumbo Road at the end of Caroline Street.

This week was Fantasy Fest. Other than Year-End, this is the busiest week of the year. People everywhere, no place to park, no seats in the restaurants, etc. They are loud, they are drunk, but as my wife, Jo, likes to say, ‘Next week they will be gone and we will still be here’.

These puppies were not at the dog park.

The Hair Dresser Ball was held at the new amphitheater at the new park at Truman Waterfront.

Lots of folks in the pool at Dante’s

The Southernmost Point has been re-done

And last but not least, it has been 4 weeks since my Total Knee Replacement Surgery. I am doing really well.
