Yesterday afternoon, our visitor was a perfect actor. Wind had change direction and was blowing towards pack ice, from where a big polar bear could smell us. The animal went very close to the hull, allowed himself to be filmed while moving back, dazzled by the searchlight, then he lay down about 40 meters from Vagabond. Léonie was very excited watching him standing up and heading for pack ice again, after looking at us for a while. Few hours later, the visit would not have been so enjoyable as we were giving Léonie a bath!
