Polar bear in the morning

This article is part of the series “2023-06: Arctic Ocean cruise KPH”.

One hour ago my telephone rang. 5:32. I picked up the phone. “Polar bear at the port side” I was told. I put on some overclothes over my pyjamas took the photo backpack and the big lens and walked outside. And there it was: I big polar bear quite near the ship. It had already circled the stern of the ship and was now starboard side.

It sniffed curiously around and was interested in all these smells the ropes emitted. And unfortunately is was quite interesting in the air sampling station as well. I hope that all the cables survived.

When it didn’t find anything of interest it slowly walked away into the fog that had started coming up.

    Wunderschöne Fotos! Der Eisbär wundert sich über die seltsamen Dinge in seinem Wohnzimmer:-)

    Ja, das war schon ein schönes Erlebnis. Danke an die Crew auf der Brücke, die mich und einige andere angerufen haben, als der Eisbär näher kam.
