245: Crab couple
Paripueira is a small beach resort at about 25 km north of Maceió, State of Alagoas. The town, accessible by a bus, hosts a handful of restaurants, bars and shops, but is more famous for the beaches. One of these beaches is Sonho Verde, the Green Dream. And indeed, you find yourself in a dream at this beach: rows of swaying palms, pale yellow beach, and calm, clear, warm sea water. There were hardly any tourists, which was mainly due to the lack of restaurants and bars along the beach. During my beach walks, I discovered this phenomenon: four eyes looked at me intently. Two pairs of eyes. What kind of animal was that? Soon I found out that this was a crab couple, in an intimate embrace.
