In September 2017 Hurricane Irma made landfall on Marco Island. For those that don't know, Cape Romano is the most southwestern barrier island between the 10,000 islands and Marco. The area took a direct hit from Irma which killed 2 of the dome homes. At that point it became clear, the clock is ticking and it's only a matter of time before the remaining four homes will drop. If it were up to me, I'd love to see the remaining structures taken 5-10 miles off shore and professionally placed underwater to best preserve their original shape and stature. Imagine the amazing Cape Romano underwater alien reef structure that both wildlife and underwater enthusiasts could enjoy for many years to come. Moreover, the current location is not ideal for marine navigation due to strong currents and winds. At high tide the already sunken domes sit just under the water line and can easily be stuck by an amateur seaman. Regardless of what the future holds for these historical and iconic structures, visit them as often as you can and when you do....how about a tip of the cap to Mr. Bob Lee for his amazing creation!
