Sea ice is getting thicker, and visitors are more! Yesterday morning, a female polar bear had much to do to change her cub's mind approaching Vagabond. Finally, the cub got scared enough by Frost barking after him, not by the amazing chattering the female was doing with her jaw (she was ringed and had meet humans before...), while they were both at less than 5 meters from the boat. Yesterday evening, Frost was barking again after a big polar bear coming to us. We had to send a banger to discourage him a little more.
