In the heat of summer, visitors to a lake probably aren’t expecting to share the water with a family of bears.
And that’s just the kind of thing that happened to Norma Alvarez and scores of other people on a beach in Lake Tahoe, California.
Visitors to the beach were taken aback when they saw a mother bear and her two cubs cooling off in the sea.
It was a busy summer day at the beach, and the unexpected guests decided to cool down in the water.
People gathered around to see the unusual scene, but the bears were just hanging around.
The kids’ expressions of delight at being in the water suggested that this was not their first time engaging in such an activity.
Of course, they weren’t bothered by the curious spectators who couldn’t stop filming the cute scene unfolding before them, but I’ll say it anyway.
At last, after a few minutes of splashing, the mother bear pulled her two cubs from the water.
It then walked a short distance up the beach as if nothing had happened or anyone was there, before disappearing back into the forest.
