This Week on the Island 11/09/2014

‘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:Beautiful all week with highs in the low 80's and lows in the mid 70's.
No book this week.
This week was Off Shore Power Boat Racing. It started with a parade of boats down Duval Street Sunday night. It is something to see these guys driving these big rigs and pulling these giant boats and making the turns on these narrow street in Old Town Key West.
Lots of racing each day off Mallory Square.

Then Saturday we celebrated Bocas 10th birthday at Schooner Wharf. There were treats for all the dogs in the bar and Birthday cake (carrot cake with cream cheese icing) for all the bar help.

Of course we can’t forget me replacing the water works on the bath tub upstairs. We were only getting hot water. Three hours later it was all fixed (thanks to the internet and a film on You-Tube.)

 Key West you have got to love it
