Perky's bat tower was knocked over and severly damaged during Irma. I am very happy that I got to see it intact before then. A cool piece is lost. more »
Well, so sad that hurricane took this from us. Spend two summer's 1968 /69, on Sugarloaf Key, 19 mile marker . Took my wife to show her some of my childhood memories. A great place to spend the summer. Still today, is a great place.
So sad this piece of history was destroyed. I'm glad I got to see it a few years ago. Built in 1929, so it's amazing it survived out in the open like it was for almost 90 years.
