This Week on the Island 01/10/2016

‘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 is beautiful here. In the mid 80’s in the day and high 70’s at night.
The island is packed with people everywhere.
Caroline Street is still under construction. Lots of loud noise, diesel smell and guys yelling above the machine noise all day long. Hopefully it will only last (on my block) for another month.
Schooner Wharf is one of my favorite spots on the whole island. It all started with a small bar on a boat.

Then there were bands on the bow of the boat and dancing on the pier.

Then the concrete block building at the end of Williams Street became available. It had a building on top that could be used as an office.

A little stage was built in the dirt outside the building.

Then the office burned.

Recently the city tore down the old office and rebuilt the concrete block building making it two story.

Always changing, but still Schooner.
