A mother keeps watch over her twin cubs (one sitting up on its haunches) as they forage the beach for snacks.
A mother & her cubs seek shelter from the cold winds on a bluff but remain cautious of the sow & her single cub bedded down to the far right.
After carefully & slowly approaching for several minutes the trio eventually bedded down within 30 feet of the others without issue.
A lone Polar Bear stands up for a view before deciding to swim to an adjacent shoreline. Polar Bears are excellent swimmers & can cover many miles of ocean in a single swim.
Another lone Polar Bear arrives at shoreline after a short quarter mile swim from the distant Barrier Island. He or she was headed for the whale-bone pile.
