This Week on the Island 08/17/2014

‘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: It’s August. It’s hot and humid. Nothing more needs to be said.
This week I am still reading ‘The True Sea’ by F. W. Belland.
We started this week with the celebration of Captain Tony’s birthday. He would have been 98.

Of course this week was the Supermoon. We had lots of high tides and flooded streets.

Lauren Bacall died this week.

Robbin Williams also died this week

North Roosevelt has had its official opening and its first wreak was on Wednesday.

This is a Cuban chug that came ashore this week with 25 Cubans aboard. There may be a lot wrong with this country, but there are people that risk their life just to get here. This boat is a lot better than most that arrive here. Some are 50 gallon drums, styrofoam and a sail. Some are empty when they get here. There is 90 miles of shark filled water between here and Cuba.

Koda, my black and white husky, escaped this week. We found her and she is safe at home.

Key West you have got to love it
