I used to know Fort Myers and Sanibel as, “The place where all the families from my high school go on break.” But after seeing this video I’m beginning to know it more as, “Heaven.”

The ocean, majestic wildlife, massive storms far out over the ocean, starry night time lapses; what more could you possibly want to see in a video?

“Awaken” made by Cameron Michaels is the stuff dreams are made of. I can’t get over the incredible view of the storm at 3:58, and of course the cute baby turtle at the end isn’t so bad.

    Lived there for a number of years on FMB until moving to and building in Cape Coral. What a wonderful place FMB is. Haven’t been back since leaving FL in 88. Thank you for a spectacular video.
