This night a raccoon tried to get my food out of the wooden box. I woke up by the noise of the flapping lid and shouted out of my tent. Only when I got out of the tent and pointed my head light to the animal it would let go. Still pretty near to my camp it was sitting in the woods, watching me visible annoyed because I had taken away his prey.

still at Big Sur coast
