Took a 35 mile trip to do training at a place called F Pad today. Saw my first polar bears on the way. The first was a large boar on a barrier island. Even though he was quite distant, the bear looked very large.
On a nearby island, we saw a sow polar bear and her cub. She, too, looked large.
I ran the boat on the return to our harbor. As we entered the area, an announcement came in on the radio reporting a polar bear headed towards the harbor, and the boat captain thought it might well be the boar we saw earlier in the day.
