Weather: Wonderful. Lots of sun, blue skies and white clouds. In the low 80’s in the day and the low 70’s at night.
The book this week was ‘Severe Clear’ by Stuart Woods.
This week we continued the celebration of The Great Conch Republic.
We started the week with the Conch Cruiser Car show at Schooner Wharf.

Wednesday was April 23rd and the 32 anniversary of the Conch Republic Seceding from the Union. Our motto is ‘We Seceded Where Others Failed’.

Thursday was ‘The Great Conch Republic Parade’. The longest parade in the world, from the Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico down Duval Street.

Friday was the ‘Great Sea Battle’

Saturday was ‘The Great Conch Republic Bed Race’ on Duval Street.

All overlooked by Key West Finest

Did I forget the street fair on Green Street by Captain Tony’s?

Have I ever mentioned that I love living here?

Key West you have got to love it
