This Week on the Island 08/18/2019


‘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:  This week, the mornings at the dog park felt a little cooler before 7 AM. This is just a passing cool front, it is still hot, hot, hot in the day time.
The book this week was:
I didn’t take a lot of pictures this week, but here is Teeki ready to start our after-lunch ride.
It was a short ride to Schooner Wharf.
For a cold Beer and some dog water.
The Spanish limes are falling out of the trees. They are small things. The Key Lime is larger. The Persian limes you buy in the grocery store are even larger.

So, since I am short of pictures, here are some sunsets.
Key West,

This Week on the Island 08/11/2019


‘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:  I’m feeling hot, hot, hot. The dog days of summer are here.
The book this week was:
The guns on the USS Billings giving a salute during their commissioning at the outer mole.
Can you say water spout capital of the world? Welcome to Key West. The first picture is from Capt Tony's looking up Green Street toward the bight. The second waterspout was from around the 7-Mile Bridge. They are tornadoes at sea and usually breakup when they hit land.
This week was Lobster Fest
And Captain Tony’s Birthday
Teeki and I spending some time at the dog park.
Did I mention that it was the dog days of summer and hot, hot, hot? Teeki likes to sleep in the bath tub. We have all sat in the tub and know how cool it can feel.
Key West,

This Week on the Island 08/04/2019


‘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:  A tropical depression didn’t develop into a hurricane but it brought lots of rain to the island.
The book this week was:
We had a Farmers Market down on the Truman Waterfront on Thursday. There were over 24 booths, but only one had any farmer stuff.
The USS Billings has been in the Sub Pen for a few days. It was here for an official commissioning on Saturday. She is on the inside of the outer mole while the Carnival ship is on the outside of the outer mole.
We leave you this week with a picture of the road to my house. This is the old (on the right) and new (on the left) 7-mile bridge at sunset.
Key West,
