This Week on the Island 01/12/2014

‘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: Saturday it rained for 11 hours. Heavy rain not showers. Monday was beautiful.
 Tuesday it was in the 50’s all day. Wednesday I went to the VA in Miami, rained all day. Then we went back to normal Key West weather. In the 80's for the weekend.
This week I read ‘Hot Damn’ by James W. Hall.
Saturday it was beautiful so I decided to take a little ride around the island on my trike. The first stop was Truman Waterfront and the Ingram with a cruise ship in the background.

Then it was down to Fort Zack state park and one of my favorite benches on the island. Sit and watch the boats come and go thru the ships channel.

From there it was thru Bahama Village and past the old Ammo Dumps

Over to the Southernmost point and all the tourist waiting in line.

Next stop was South Beach on the Atlantic side of Duval Street. Lots of people sitting in the sun.

Then over to Louis Backyard

Next it was over to White Street Pier.

Crossed the island on White Street and back home. The banana tree now has 26 

Went upstairs on the back deck and laid in the sun a while. Life is good.

Key West you have got to love it
