This Week on the Island 01/03/2015

‘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: Some rain, lots of sun.
This week I read ‘Once upon an Island’. A collection of short fiction, poetry and non-fiction from New Key West Writers. I also read ‘Mango Summers’, short stories from Key West Authors’ Coop.
I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve and hope all your expectations for the 2015 come true.
The island has been packed. People everywhere. Hopefully we will be back to normal next week.
With Year-End we have The Conch Lowering at Sloppy Joes.

We have the lowering of the Pirate Wench at Schooner Wharf

We have the lowering of the female impersonator, Sushi, in the giant pink slipper at Bourbon Street Pub on Duval. Picture thanks to Rob O'Neal.

We have the lowering of the lime into the giant Margaritta at Sunset Pier (old picture)

And let’s not forget the Wiener Dog parade

So we end 2014 and start 2015 with Koda at the beach on Simonton as she enjoys the waters of the Gulf of Mexico on 01/01/2015.

 Key West you have got to love it
