This Week on the Island 10/12/2014

‘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: A taste of fall came thru this week. It brought some rain and a little cooler weather.  The sun, blue skies, and white clouds were back by Saturday with 85 degrees.
This week I continued reading ‘The Stone Wife’ by Peter Lovesey.
Boca continues to have problems with his feet. I took him back to the vet and started him on some different medicine. I also put the cone of shame back on him to keep him from licking his feet.

These pods are falling out of a tree over near the library. Kind of look like something out of a horror movie to me.

My sister and her husband were in town this week from Taylors, SC.

Koda has taken over Boca’s duties of begging food. This stop was at the Sebago stand on Lazy Way Lane.

Nothing says the tropics like a coconut palm full of (50) coconuts. There are close to 3,000 different types of palm trees.

Tuesday we had another waterspout appear.

The end of Williams Street next to the bight will be under construction for the next 10 weeks. The city is putting in some pumps and a turn-around. This should make Lazy Way Lane a pedestrian walkway.

Key West you have got to love it
