We can’t thank new panda friend Sylvia C. enough for sending these photos of Babette taking a well earned mini-holiday at the southern California coast. All that rain, wind, and foul weather just gets a panda down, don’t ‘cha know? Babette is wearing a stunning blue and yellow polka dot bikini…not quite teensy weensy, because, well, let’s not go there OK?
As you can see here, it’s not all play and no work! Babette has designed and built a sand castle model of the new wing of the Hospital for Indigent Pandas. As you know, Babette founded this hospital in Greenbank WA, and spends many hours selflessly tending to pandas with her tender touch. (Her nurses outfit will be showing up any day now, to add to her wardrobe!)
Here we see Babette, examining some tide pool life. In addition to her hospital work, Babette also has a degree in Marine Biology. Or was it that she went to a sushi bar once? Whatever. Soon Babette will be winging her way back to the frozen north, so that she can model her new ski ensemble!
Be the Bear!

PS…no, I don’t know why she went off to California without me.
