Aerial Photography, ‘The Last Resort’, Islamorada, Florida

A recent aerial assignment took me to the air again with pilot and friend Henry Pinder. I met Henry at Tavernaero, a grass strip on Plantation Key. We took the door off of the C182 and flew 15 miles south down to Lower Matecumbe Key. Once on-station we flew squares around the subject property, ‘The Last Resort’ until I was satisfied the images covered the assignment. The owner of the resort, Greg Feeley, needed new aerial photos for his website. Actually, there’s a fascinating story about ‘The Last Resort’, who named it and why and it all involves Cyrus Eaton, his wife Anne Eaton, this house (see photos) and the 1935 ‘Labor Day’ hurricane that destroyed Islamorada. You can read more of the history of the little “conch” house and the storms she endured on the website.
