On Wednesday morning (1st of June) we could only notice that it was going to be another very hot day. Of course, it didn’t prevent us from being very excited about a new day with bears!

This time we made sure we didn’t forget the water bottles. They were stuffed in my new ‘zoo bag’ I bought yesterday in the shop. We arrived in the park in good time so we had to wait a little before it was opened.

Wilbär knows how to stay cool in the heat!

After our visit in Rostock we started planning visiting even Orsa. We thought the end of May/the beginning of June would be a perfect time because it wouldn’t be too warm. Oh bear, were we wrong!!! When we got out of the car in front of our hotel it was like stepping into a Finnish sauna.

The hot weather lasted during the couple of days we spent in Orsa/Mora. Well, we just had to accept that the weather gods were teasing us ….

Hello friends! It’s me – Wilbär – bringing you Summer greetings from Orsa!

When Mervi and Vesa visited us I wasn’t in a playing mood. Sorry about that but now Anders have taken some great photos of me so I hope they will make you glad.

I must confess that choosing between a nice tyre and balls in different colours isn’t so easy. However, being a clever bear I’ve solved the problem – I’m playing with them all. Almost at the same time, too …..
