This Week on the Island 10/18/2015

‘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: Beautiful. Some rain. Lots of sunshine, blue skies, white clouds and temperature in the mid 80’s.
Another week of slow time (not many tourist).
Saturday morning Koda and I took a walk over to the bight and pass the Dry Tortugas Museum.
The city is rebuilding the parking lot in front of Half Shell Raw Bar.
I took a trike ride to see what was happening. Captain Tony’s open but nothing happening.
Sloppy Joes open but nothing happening.
The Bull and Whistle open but nothing happening.
Willie T’s open with a guy playing 60’s and 70’s music. Lots of Jimi Hendrix. I stayed a while.
Green Parrot open but nothing happening.
Lazy Way Lane has been paved.
We leave you at Simonton Beach looking out toward Christmas Tree Island (used to be Wisteria Island). It was called Wisteria because that was the name of a ship that sunk there before the island was built by the Navy using the material they dug from the ocean bed to create the ships channel. The fisherman used the Wisteria's  deck to ‘process’ the shark they caught. Koda likes this beach.
Key West you have got to love it
