This Week on the Island 08/30/2015

‘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: Lots of rain this week.
No book this week.
This week has mostly been about Erika, the hurricane that never was. It has been 10 years since Hurricane Karina hit New Orleans (and Key West) so the weather people made a big deal about Erika and then it blew itself out. Then they wonder why we don’t leave when a real one comes.

In other news, Taco Hell (Bell) opened this week.
The store on the corner of Front Street and Duval Street is being gutted to become another CVS.
The Key West, Florida, City Commission has voted unanimously to approve an ordinance that would establish a $100 ticket for the possession of up to 20 grams of cannabis.
The guy at Clinton Square playing on the steel drums.

Jo and I jumped on out trikes and road to the store on Saturday.
And we leave you this week with a rainbow over House Boat Row at Garrison Bight. Thanks to Conchtastic Key West Facebook.

Key West you have got to love it
