This Week on the Island 10/25/2015

‘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:  It was warm last week, then came the rain, then the wind and now lots of sunshine, blue skies, white clouds and NO HUMIDITY. I am now back in my rocking chair on the front porch reading.
This week I read ‘Blood Ties in Key West’ by Susan Haskell. Really a good book. I will need to look for more by this author.
 It is now ‘stone crab season’.
It was 10 years ago that Hurricane Wilma came calling. Flooded everything with salt water. This was just after Katrina had flooded us earlier in the summer.
Carl Peachey is leaving the island. He plays guitar with Michael McCloud. He will be missed.
Goombay, the celebration of our African/Caribbean Heritage was held this week on Patronia Street in Bahama Village.
The Zombi  Bike Ride will be Sunday. Jo and I have our trikes ready.
Fantasy Fest will be next week.

Key West you have got to love it
