This Week on the Island 05/11/2014

‘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.

Weather: Same as the last 4 weeks. Wonderful. Lots of sun, blue skies and white clouds. In the mid 80’s in the day and the mid 70’s at night. It is now hotter up north than it is here on the island. Columbia, SC 93 degrees.
The book this week was ‘Collateral Damage’ by Stuart Woods.
Monday was Cinco de Mayo with celebrations all around town. I of course went to the taco eating contest at Schooner (not as a contestant). Each contestant got some tacos, a hot pepper, a Coroner, and a shot of tequila. Free food.

Tuesday there was a gremlin shark caught in our waters that attracted national news.

This was Songwriters Week here in Key West with writers and singers showing their stuff at locations around Old Town. Lots of locations each day. Saturday there was a concert on Duval by Sloppy Joes.

Saturday we took a road trip in the ‘new’ 2002 Chevy Tracker. We went to Marathon to see Dr. Doug to have Boca’s left front food looked at. He has been limping lately. He had an infection in his foot and will be on drugs.

You may remember Harbor House on Lazy Way Lane and this building

Well they tore it down and built this building as part of the 96 room hotel on Lazy Way Lane.

Sunday we will go to Schooner to celebrate Mother’s Day/my birthday. It is the big 7-0 for me.

Key West you have got to love it
