‘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: Wonderful. This is why we live here.
EASTER. I hope you enjoy your day in the way that means the most to you. I find religion fascinating. Be nice because when you die, well who knows. This week the blog will be about the Key West Cemetery.
The entrance to the Key West Cemetery.
The Cemetery is on the highest point on the island at 16 feet above sea level. Key West is made from coral rock so we bury above the ground. Many of the old graves were in the ground.
Out Cemetery is a beautiful place.
BUT, even in death we separate the people. There is the Catholic Section.
And the Jewish Section
There is the USS Maine Section
The Cuban Patriot Section
There is the ‘Key West Condos’ (less expensive) Section
Some of our graves have funny savings. This is the most popular “I Told You I Was Sick’.
And last but not least we have an Easter Bunny on the rear of the trike.
I hope you find your share of the eggs.
Key West, You have got to love it
