This time I let Kai begin and present his early morning activities. He had a big fish for breakfast …. …. but suddenly he met a feathered guest on the rock and found it more interesting than the fish.

Now that Nordi and Shauna have grown so much it isn’t always so easy to see who is who in the photos. This time the photos are ‘labelled’ with names. Thank you, Anna, for that!

It’s morning so Shauna and Nordi are doing their ‘start a new day exercises’. It doesn’t happen so often all three can be caught in a same photo but this time the polar bear family wanted to surprise their fans.

Hot weather but cool polar bears!
