This Week on the Island 09/04/2016

  ‘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: Forecast for next 2 months: Hot and humid with a chance for showers. Maybe a hurricane or two. That last hurricane missed us. It came up the Florida Straits (Water between us and Cuba), but didn’t turn into a hurricane until it passed us and got into the Gulf of Mexico.
The book this week was ‘Tequila Mockingbird’ by Lewis C. Haskell.
 This week was ‘Brew Fest’ here in Key West.
The big kick off party was held at The Water Front Brewery.
Then it moved on to South Beach on the Atlantic end of Duval Street.
Lots of people waiting in line to have their picture taken at the Southernmost Point.

The new 24 hour gym has opened on Caroling Street. This building used to be West Marine.
But the restaurant part is still vacant.
We leave you this week with ‘Rusty’ using the water pipe to cross the Salt Run water on North Roosevelt. Rusty is about 6 feet long. The Salt Run connects the Gulf of Mexico with the Riviera Canal near Winn Dixie.

Key West you have got to love it
