This Week on the Island 06/21/2015

‘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: In the high 80’s with lots of humidity. Lots of sunshine, white clouds and blue skies.
This week I started reading ’Back to Blood’ by Tom Wolfe.
Summer is here and there is not a lot happening on the island this week. So it was time for a road trip. Koda needed some shots so we loaded up the dogs and headed 50 miles up US#1 to Marathon.
We left home.

With the dogs in the Chevy Tracker

We went across the Bahia Honda (deep Water) bridge. The picture is the old railroad bridge the Flagler built about 100 years ago. The old roadway is on top of the cage system.

And across the 7-mile bridge

To the Marathon Vet (Dr. Doug)

Koda got her shots and Boca had a growth on his tail checked out.  Everybody was fine so we drove back to Key West and went for a walk.

Someone butchered ‘the hanging tree’ at Captain Tony’s.

Key West you have got to love it
