You may recall that during the Olympics we saw a lot of photos of Finnegan Bear in the Cubby Pool, practicing his skills.  We hadn’t seen him in the pool for quite a while, but today we have photos of our swimmer once again.  Of course he and the other two cubs may swim when they are not being observed, but we have no way of knowing that for sure.

The weather has turned fall-like the last few days, but since bears have fur swimsuits – er, coats – the water temperature didn’t phase Finn.  What is so noticeable is how much larger he looks in the pool than when we saw him in the summer.

Finnegan took a dip in the Cubby Pool.

We remember when the log seemed very large next to little Finnegan.

Earlier, Finn struggled to get up on the log. It’s hard to believe the changes in him.

He seems to be enjoying the water. He was always a “water cub.”

He took a couple of laps in the pool before climbing out.

After a while he climbed out to go and join Andy in foraging.

While Finnegan was swimming, Eliza was napping in her tree and her brother Andy was foraging.  Finn went to join Andy after his swim.
