This Week On The Island 11/09/2008
The pictures this week (click to enlarge) are ‘Captain Tony’ on the cover of his new book and ‘Captain Tony’ on the cover of the Key West Citizen.
The Weather: Beautiful. The house is open and the breeze in blowing thru.
The book this week was ‘Life Lessons of a Legend’ by Captain Tony Tarracino and Brad Manard.
The turkey vultures are back on their migration south. They come thru every November.
Scrubs on Caroline Street and the new Cuban Restaurant on Green Street have closed. Turtle Kraals has reopened after being closed for about a month.
The Captain has left the island. At his viewing he had a deck of cards in his right hand, a pack of Luckys in his left hand and a folded up picture of Marilyn Monroe in his top pocket. There was a funeral mass on Saturday and a parade from St. Mary Star of the Sea down Duval to Captain Tony’s on Green Street. A street party was held from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
