The time before a trip is sometimes the best.
The anticipation, planning what the trip will entail.
Figuring out where you want to go
What you want to see.
I used to plan every detail on a trip, timing and everything.
Now I just want to go somewhere different, absorb the area and sketch.
I am no hurry to see everything and cover all the hot spots.
Birding? I now want to park in a spot and see what comes to me rather than chasing.
New town? Where can I sit and watch life move about me?
Then I walk in the mornings mostly.
Seeing the town or area come to life.
The pre-trip anticipation?
The new places I get to walk, the birds I will hear and the sights I will see and sketch.
Simple, but oh so fulfilling.
