We all know that there are morning when we simply don’t want to get up. Even Gerda and Kai had one of those mornings ….

Maybe we should rise and shine …..

….. on the second thought, why not continue sleeping ….

Gerda made an effort to stand up ….

…. but decided to go back to the land of sweet dreams. 🙂

Kai thought it was time for some action anyway. Lying in a typical polar bear pose is action, too!! 🙂

Maybe some light gymnastics will make me feel more like an action guy.

Kai found a toy and now the visitors were waiting for wild games.

Well, wild games can be done lying on my back!

I’m not really in a playing mood today.

I try to take a walk on the stair anyway ….

The steps are so slippery!

Kai thought it was wiser to take a nap and not risk ‘incidents’ on the icy steps.

After a long nap Gerda and Kai felt relaxed and ready for their daily fun.

And now – ACTION!

Kai is busy with a canister, and Gerda takes care of a ball

  1. Dear Mervi,

    Thank you for this nice story!
    Your reports are always so logic and are following the pictures. Really, even the polar bears have those days when they don’t want to do anything.
    I like pictures, where Kai tries to do some gymnastics on the stair.
    Thanks to Anna for these beautiful pictures!

    With greetings from Tallinn

  2. Mervi, thank you very much for the article!

  3. Dear Anna and Mervi
    Your photos and words together bring
    Gerda and Kai to life. They are such big
    cuddly looking Polar Bears. Together they
    seem very happy and peaceful.

  4. Liebe Anna & Mervi

    Auch schlafende Bären sind ein schöner Anblick
    und haben etwas beruhigendes. Es wurde aber
    dann ja doch noch gespielt. Danke für die
    Videos, die ich später anschauen werde.

    Herzliche Grüße
    Chris 🙂

  5. Dear Mervi and Anna!
    This is again an example for successful teamwork! The photos are beautiful and the subtitles go together well with them!
    I loved the pics of Gerda in the land of dreams as well as the exercises Kai made on the steps.
    The videos are great too.

    The relaxed bears somehow made me sleepy…
    Good to see there was some action too – finally.
    So I decided not to go to bed and give this day another chance…

    I wish everybody a Happy Easter

  6. Liebe Mervi und liebe Anna,
    Gerda und Kai haben vielleicht nicht das schönste Gehege aber sie fühlen sich wohl und sehen fantastisch aus.
    Herzlichen Dank, war wieder schön Bilder, Videos und perfekt getextet, anzusehen und zu lesen.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  7. Liebe Mervi, liebe Anna,

    danke für die wunderschönen Bilder von Kai und Gerda. Ich kann die Beiden gut verstehen. Wer steht schon gerne morgens auf?

    Kai bei der Gymnastik und in der “Troll-Pose” ist klasse.

    Aber auch die Videos haben mir sehr gut gefallen. Besonders das erste, da war ja richtig Action im Wasser.

    Liebe Grüße

  8. Liebe Mervi, liebe Anna!

    Danke für die wunderbaren Bilder. So ein fauler Morgen ist einfach herrlich, schön die Beiden so entspannt zu sehen.

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  9. Thank you, dear ANNA, for more beautiful pictures and videos of lovely GERDA and KAI.
    They give the impression to be quite contented, even though their enclosure don’t seem to be the most ideal one thinkable . . .

    Thanks also to you, dear MERVI, for the editorial work.

  10. dear Mervi, dear Anna,
    I like it so much to see these wonderful bears Kai and Gerda are in a cosy mood, enjoying the snow and ice and having a nap after playing.Gerda and Kai are looking great. Thank you very much for all the lovely pictures of these content bears.
