When visiting a lake, in the middle of the summer, the last thing to expect is a family of bears swimming side by side with beachgoers. Well, that’s exactly the kind of encounter Norma Alvarez and dozens of other people experienced on the beach of Lake Tahoe in California.
The beachgoers couldn’t believe their eyes, when spotted a mama bear and her two lovely cubs getting into the water to cool themselves, in the middle of the day. It was a hot summer day and the beach was full of people when the unexpected visitors decided to have some splash time.
Under the watch of all the people that gathered to witness the unusual scene, the bears just had some quality time. The little ones seemed so excited to play in the water and judging by the way they acted, that wasn’t the first time they experienced that sort of activity. Needless to mention, they weren’t bothered at all by all those curious onlookers who couldn’t stop recording the adorable scene that unfolded in front of them.
Finally, after a couple of minutes of splashing, the mother bear took her two little offspring out of the water. It followed a short walk on the beach, just like nothing happened and no one was there, before getting back into the woods. Alvarez uploaded the video of them splashing in the waves only a few days ago but it’s already gone viral. While the video is unbearably cute, please remember to keep your distance from such big wild animals.
