This Week on the Island 03/27/2016

 ‘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: Cold last week end, then beautiful in the middle of the week, cloudy and humid for the week end.
The book this week was ‘Starkey’s Key West’ by Elizabeth Hilleren. I like holding a book in my hand as I read. The books last week and this week have been iBooks.  I am having a hard time getting used to reading them on line.
This weekend is Easter and Spring Break is over for this year. I hope you have a great Easter and find all the eggs.
Last week The Key West Citizen had a good article and pictures of me and the dogs.
Yankee Jack, a performer at The Bull, died week before last. He will be missed.
Kenny Chesney was in town and did a free concert at Sloppy Joes on Tuesday.
March 23rd was ‘National Puppy Day’.
El Galleon Andalucia sailed into the Key West Bight on March 24 and docked at the end of Margaret Street between Half Shell and Turtle Kraals.

The Stones gave a concert in Havana on March 25th. You were supposed to be able to hear the music from the beach. Didn’t hear a thing.
The Polynesian Voyaging Society’s canoe, the Hokulea, is pictured Thursday docked at the Key West Bight. The boat arrived late Wednesday. The canoe, along with its sister vessel, the Hikianalia, are traveling more than 60,000 nautical miles around the globe with a message of sustainability. Now on the Caribbean leg of its voyage, the vessel will head to Cuba after its stay in Key West. For information on the voyage, visit
We end with another sunset from Howard Livingstons Facebook page.
Key West you have got to love it
