This Week on the Island 01/13/2008
The picture this week is a home for sale in Key West. It is the Porter Mansion on the corner of Duval and Caroline and is priced at a low $15 million. It was built in 1838 and is 6,000 sq ft. It was purchased by Joseph Yates Porter from South Carolina in 1845 and has been in his family since.
The Weather: Beautiful. High 70's and low 80's in the day with a blue sky. Spent lots of time outside playing in the yard.
No book this week.
Not a lot happening this week and not a lot of people in town after the cruise ships leave each day.
This week was another trip to the VA in Miami on the VA bus. Get up at 4:00 AM to catch the bus at 5:00 AM and get home at 6:00 PM. Another long uneventful day, except I saw the Schooner Western Union in dry dock in Miami being repaired. The Western Union is normally parked by Schooner Wharf Bar.
