This Week on the Island 12/28/2003

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

This weeks book was another by Laurence Shames titled 'Virgin Heat'. It is about a New York Mob Boss's daughter that comes to Key West looking for a past lover that is in the witness protection program. The 'Family' gets upset and all end up in Key West trying to find her.
Monday, Dec 22, was the shortest day of the year (Winter Solstice) . Sunrise at 7:06 AM and Sunset 5:43 PM. High 72 degrees and low 66 degrees. Now the days start getting longer. All week the weather has been wonderful, mid 70's in the day and mid 60's at night with a brilliant sun.

People everywhere! No parking places anywhere! Charter boats full! Hotels and motels full! Bars and Restaurants full! Noise everywhere! Conch tour trains everywhere! Scooters everywhere! Lots of families with kids and more oriental people here than usual. I guess people are taking a little winter break from the weather in the north.

Went to the Fresh Market on the bight to get a loaf of bread on Christmas Eve, they were having a wine tasting party. I love living here.
