The use of manipulating a virtual camera opens the door to many different simulators and a near inifitne number of scenes one can create in openGL. I originally wanted to recreate the "Destiny Islands" a playable world in the video game Kingdom Hearts. After refining my idea to be a little more managable, I decided to create a single relaxing beach scene dubbed "Destiny Island".

An up close look at the crystal clear water. Doesn't it look refreshing?
Gotta have some chairs on the sandy beach!
