This Week on the Island 11/02/2003

'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.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Richard Petty's yacht 'Left Turn' is in the Key West Bight. It has been here for about a week. There is a large yacht in the Hilton marina and Madonna's house on Sunset Key is 'unshuttered'. I think she may have come in town for the last of 'Fantasy Fest'.

The weather is starting to cool off. It is in the mid 80's in the day and the mid 70's at night and most of the humidity is gone. The sun is out and the sunsets are beautiful.

Oh, yes, I almost forgot to mention that we had a little over 3000 friends come to visit this week. This week was Meeting Of The Minds (MOTM) the annual gathering of Parrot Heads (Jimmy Buffett) fans. There were people from all over the USA, Canada, and Australia. It was a busy week with parties held all over the island every day. Headquarters for the Convention was the Casa Marina and there were bands playing there on the grass next to the beach by the ocean. It was a beautiful setting. We had a great time. There is one last party, at Schooner Wharf, for the people that do not have to be back at work on Monday. So I guess Jo and I will head over to the 'NO Planes on Sunday' Party. Got to go.
