The Costa Brava is full of snails. When it is hot, they are hiding in their house, safe from the heat and drought. They wait, wait and wait, patiently and motionless, until it finally starts raining.
Rain can be crazy here immediate and drastic, big thunderstorms that turn streets into raging rivers. When the storms pass – almost as quick as they started – nature totally changed its appearance.
Hundreds of little frogs and toads everywhere, thousands of snails on the move, all shiny and new.
The next day brings on a new burning sun, drying out the pools, pushing the water-lovers back into hiding.
