This Week on the Island 11/27/2016

  ‘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: Another beautiful week just like the last 3 or 4.  We are into the dry season and the temperature is in the low 80’s in the day and low 70’s at night. Lots of sunshine, blue skies and white fluffy clouds.
The book this week was ‘Key West Confidential’ by Bud Naveron. A great book about old Key West (1960’s till today). I really enjoyed this book.
This week we had Burt Reynolds in town.
We had the lighting of the lights around the Key West Bight.
We also had Sand Sculptures on the beach at the Casa Marina.
We had 500 bikes down Duval Street after their ride from Miami to Key West.
We also have lots of flowers in bloom
 Some friends were in town
I like old pictures and maps of Key West. This is a picture of the Customs House when it was on the beach, before the land around it was fill in. In the left top corner thru the trees is Ft Zack when it was surrounded by water.
Key West you have got to love it
