Livingston and the Mile Marker 24 Band have followers that call themselves
Coconut Cast-A-Ways. Well the Castaways against cancer raised $75,000 on their kayak

Street Pier is being repaved. If you enlarge the picture you will see the White
Street Pier. It has been renamed the Edward B Knight Pier.
annual swim around Key West was this week. It is a 12 mile swim.
my trike from Ocean to Ocean this week. OK, so it wasn’t the Atlantic to the
Pacific, it was the Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico. OK, so it wasn't all the way across Florida it was only 1 ½ miles
down Duval Street but it still was the Atlantic to the Gulf. Yes that is Sunset Pier in the background on the Gulf side of the island.
Birthday and Flag Day was June 14th.
this week with a great view between two palm trees looking East at the sand,
Atlantic Ocean, blue skies and white clouds.
