This Week on the Island 01/03/2016

‘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: In the mid 80’s in the day and high 70’s at night.
Walt Disney sent two of his ‘Mickey Mouse’ ships to Key West on the same day this week.
The last day of the year we have our ‘Dachshund Parade’ it goes on for 3 blocks.

We also had Year end with the Conch Shell drop at Sloppy Joes

Sushi being lowered in a big red shoe

And the Pirate Wench being lowered from the mast of a ship

And it was 45 years ago on New Year’s Eve that I asked Jo to marry me. This is a picture of us on a cruise many years ago.

We leave you this week with the tourist enjoying the Key West sun on South Beach on the Atlantic end of Duval Street the last day of 2015.

And let’s not forget the kids having a great time when the waves splash all over them.

 Happy 2016 to you and yours

Key West you have got to love it
