I haven't even been here a day

My adventure in Africa 2012
Excerpts from my field sketchbook/journal

The amazing sky and open Silale Swamp
"6:02 am -- I am trying to find the words to describe what I have awoken too... I should have known that it was morning even before I opened my eyes because of all the birds singing. There was a slight haze that is burning off very fast and from the porch of my tent I can see out across the African Savannah  The sun is just starting to come up & hit the under belly of the clouds --- Beautiful! Two Go-Away-Birds just flew by..."
"I haven't even been here a day and I am already realizing how much I am going to miss this."
That is from the entry of my first morning waking up in the bush, arriving late the night prior I had no idea what the camp or surrounding area looked like and was happily surprised to find myself in this Eden.

Field sketch of a male Impala.
Drawn while in Africa
"9:23 pm -- WHAT A DAY! Saw so many different animals, too many to list tonight, finishing my Tuskers and going to bed." 
Day 2 of our wanderings, stayed outside the park this day.

We went on an afternoon game drive where I had the great fortune to see a decent size heard of Wildebeests and then had the extreme thrill of being able to sit in the "spotters chair" on the front of the Land Cruiser and video tape the heard as we got close.

This is me sitting in the "Spotters Chair" with Wildebeests in the distance.
I'm not having any fun at all.
