Nuenen – Frimas and Henk could have danced all day!

The Summer is turning into the Autumn now. Soon the golden October will paint the trees in different shades of yellow and red. The polar bear family in Nuenen can still enjoy the warm weather but I guess they won’t mind when it get’s a bit cooler.

I don’t do early mornings!! Wake me up when the catering service arrives! 🙂


Nivi is meditating. Maybe he’s wondering what the next season will be like. So far this year has been very ‘odd’ due to the covid-19.


Hopefully the visitors will keep the distance and wear masks so we can finally get rid of the virus!


It would be great to get back to the normal.


Even a young polar bear boy has very impressive paws!


Frimas is keeping an eye on her kids.


Your fur seems to be quite acceptable! 🙂


Shall we have a swimming tour?


Come on, be a sport!


It takes two to tango! Can I have the next dance in the water?


I’m still thinking ….


Well, maybe …..


Where’s the music? I’d like to dance to the Polar Bear Tango!


OK! We can dance without music, too!



The passionate Argentine style …..


We could have danced all day
We could have danced all day
And still have begged for more
We could have spread our paws
And done a thousand things

(A polar bear version of ‘I could have danced all night’ from My Fair Lady) 🙂


Henk has a lovely smile on his face


The beautiful prophile of Nivi


Henk has something dreamy in his eyes ….


Like so many other polar bears even Frimas likes to use a stone as a cushion. Hmm, maybe it’s more comfortable than we can imagine.

  1. Dear Mervi and Hans
    It is wonderful that Henk seems so relaxed around his cubs.
    The family in Nuenen is a lovely one.

  2. Mervi,

    der Polar Bär Tango ist klasse, dein Witz ist unerschöpflich!
    Am besten ist der Kommetar zu Hanks Bild am Anfang, ich wünschte, ich hätte auch so ein zuverlässiges Catering bei mir daheim.

    Ich liebe die Pfotenstellung von Nivi, sie erinnert so unverwechselbar an Knut.

    Es ist toll, dass die Familie mit Hank auĂźerordentlich harmonisch zusammenleben kann,
    was bei aller Idylle nur sehr selten gelingt.

    Herzliche Grüße und Dank an Has Muskens für die schönen Fotos!

  3. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Hans.
    Best wishes to Frimas, Henk and their family.

  4. Dear Hans and Mervi!
    Thank you for the pictures of the polar bear family. Henk is an impressive bear. The dance in the water was interesting.

  5. Dear Hans and Mervi!
    Thank you for the news from Nuenen. It is good to see that the polar bears family is doing fine together and the parents even want to dance Tango with each other.

    The first photo shows exactly what I´d like to do during winter time. I´d like to sleep until f… Covid 19 is over and there is a vaccine protection for everyone…
    What a strange experience 2020 was and is.

    My favourite photo is ” the passionate Argentine style!” Passionate indeed!
