Hello Bone Island friends,
Pup and I have received many calls, emails and texts from our wonderful Bare It All friends expressing concern about us and our beloved Key West. I think my husband found the perfect quote for our real estate blog (deantownsend.com):
“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” - Mark Twain
Key West and all of us that call it home are doing well. Clean up around the island is ongoing. We always wish it would happen faster, of course, but we are almost back to Key West’s usual recipe of ab-normal. Unfortunately, our neighbors in the Middle and Lower Keys did not fair as well and they will need some time to clean up and rebuild. Our hearts and help go to them as well as all the victims of the recent storms.
Key West officially re-opens to tourism tomorrow, Sunday October 1st. It’s already time to start getting ready for Fantasy Fest, which begins Friday October 20th. It’s the one week of the year when I like to wear clothes – err costumes!
Most importantly, we want all our friends to know that Bone Island Bare It All will go on as planned, November 30th – December 3rd. One of the best ways to help rebuild is to support the local economy. So we invite everyone to come back and enjoy Key West’s quintessentially quirky hospitality. We and the entire island are looking forward to your return and to another great weekend together.
See you all soon,
Dean The Naked Realtor and Pup
