This Week on the Island 02/15/2015

‘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: 58 degrees Saturday morning with a cold wind out of the north. I tell tourist that it very seldom gets below 60 degrees and very seldom gets above 90 degrees. I guess today is one of those ‘very seldom days.’
This week I started reading ‘The Killing Edge’ by Heather Graham.
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
Some construction happening on Duval Street as they replace the drains.

Putting in a parking lot where the building used to stand that my wife worked in.

The last of old city hall on the corner of Simonton and Angels is now down

The new fire station is up and running on Simonton Street

Williams Street (by Schooner Wharf) has been updated

The place that opened less than a year ago on Green Street as Shameless, is now Chicagos

And lets not forget the city putting in a new drain at Mallory Square

The more things change, the more they remain the same.
Key West you have got to love it
