There was that hazy look in the atmosphere this morning, which as far as I know means it will be a clear day. The sun was out when I left but who knows which way the weather will turn. I headed straight toward the air strip to find a huge herd of Impala already seeking shade. I rescued another terrapin off the road today, and found a huge terrapin at Simbiri dam lying in the long grass with another guy half his size.
The Lions have disappeared in that mopane from last night, in any event, I was hoping to find some elephant near Chibi. One thing about the bush is that things rarely work out the way you imagine in your head. In fact, it is much like life itself, you don’t have to have everything figured out to experience it’s richness. There is so much treasure out there, but it is not all blaze and glory, you have to open your eyes. Funny thing is, today was special, I found the Elephant at Chibi as I had hoped.
What was even better was that they were in the water – and I always seem to miss them playing in the mud. I cannot get enough of hanging around that breeding herd. Those little guys are so inquisitive, they came right up to my vehicle to smell the new addition to the herd.
I always seem to have an experience with these Elephants on a much deeper level and anyone who has been around them would say the same. Blaze and glory then it was for today.
