Time Marches On…

Cyrus Teed once said that some day Estero will be home to 10 million people. He may have been right, but they aren’t Koreshans…

Time Magazine and Google have partnered to take millions of photographs from the Landsat satellite, animate them and show a timeline from 1984 up to 2012.

Here is how the Estero area looks. You can see tremendous growth, including FGCU showing up out of nowhere. You can see Coconut Point Mall coming forth from what was once called “Sweetwater Ranch”. Closer to home, watch “Pelican Sound” grow and look at the area just east of Estero Bay and wonder what effect that has on the eco system. It is fascinating. The video cycles through three times.
