Junto a la hoguera (Topic: Campfire)
Last weekend I was in the park with some friends where we made a campfire and grilled some snacks. Everyone brought something to eat and drink: Cristina and Marcos brought a few bottles of lemonade, beer and wine. Pablo turned up to the campfire with his little brother, who he had just been fishing with. And they had actually managed to catch something: two big fish that we grilled on the fire. We put the meat and sausages that Maria had brought on skewers and roasted them over the open fire. I’m a vegetarian, so I took care of the rest: potatoes, avocados and mushrooms. Ah! And a must-have for every picnic: pasta salad. But I forgot the garlic bread at home.
Suddenly, something unbelievable happened: once it had turned dark, something stirred in the bushes. Out of nowhere two racoons appeared and were observing us intently. Over the course of a few minutes, they got closer and closer until suddenly chaos erupted on the picnic blanket. They knocked over the bottles of wine and beer and went directly for the meat. They didn’t touch the pasta salad though … I guess they weren’t keen!
In the blink of an eye, the raccoons were gone. We were absolutely baffled and could only sit there, speechless. After a while we realised that they had also stolen one of the fresh fish!
