Florida and the Bahamas from sea level to 1000 feet, Part 5

Leaving Norman's Cay behind us, we were off for our last overnight in the Bahamas. 

Turquiose waters, Long Island, Bahamas
A two hour flight over water, brought us straight across the capital island of Nassau and then onwards to Bimini, the most Westward island of the Bahamas.

Bimini Game Club, Bamahas
We stayed at the Bimini Big Game Club, an interesting resort which is owned and run by marine wildlife scientist and artist, Guy Harvey. The image above of the hotel was taken while on the approach to the South Bimini airstrip.

On the Southern tip of North Bimini (Alis town), I photographed the remains of "Gallant Lady".

The next morning we unfortunately had to leave the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. After having cleared customs at West Palm Beach (PBI) we made our last flight of the trip, a little hop to Lantana (LNA) airport where we returned the keys to Palm Beach Flight Training, the flying school where we rented the aircraft.

"Florida and the Bahamas from sea level to 1000ft" has been a success. Mainly due to the extensive planning, which we started about 6 months before, we were able to almost complete the plan 100% .

Those of you that have missed it... Make sure you check out my 5 min Vimeo video, shot with the GoPro Hero 2 on the wing and tail of our little Cessna!

It might be about 2 years away, but I'm starting to daydream about our next flying-photo adventure. Canada, Australia, South-Africa; they are all on the bucket list!

Fly safe, shoot well,
