This Week on the Island 03/13/2016

‘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: Beautiful Week.
The book this week was ‘Almost Havana’ by F.W. Belland and Chris Belland.
Hope you remembered to spring forward.
 This week was the 2nd week of Spring Break. The Florida Schools are out and that makes Keys West packed. I enjoy watching the college kids do the same dumb stuff I used to do.
Took a trike ride down to Fort Zack.
Rode past the stables for the Police Horses.
Went out on the waterfront at the Ships Channel.
Rode thru Truman Annex to the Truman Little White House.
Took another trike ride to the grocery store and got caught in a heavy rain storm. About a mile from home the trike quit. I had to pull it home and it was full of groceries and I was soaked. After it dried out it worked fine.
 The SandBar, a new bar in town is in the old 500 Beers location across from Sloppy Joe’s on Green Street.
 Key West you have got to love it
