They stop charging for beach parking after labor day. If you hang out at the fish pier in Chatham you can see seals when the fishing boats come in.

The pier is an easy place to see the seals.

I have a couple of pics of Chatham harbor here.

Our group found it intriguing that when we were last on the boat and hanging around the seal filled sandbar near Minister's Point that the seals came out to greet our boat. This is the First time this has happened to us.

I hope that the seals haven't been tempted with food treats to encourage their continued presence.

We are loaded with seals up here. Loaded. The sharks have found the perfect spot to feed.

Fortunately the Chatham beach crowd has left for the season and the timing is perfect for beach-walking/shark-sighting. The tourists will flock to Chatham to see the sharks and seals! Let's hope that the 2010 beach season finds a friendlier swimming atmosphere in Chatham. Looks like the sharks pretty much took care of the problem of dangerous swimming currents off South Beach by keeping folks out of the water and may actually be a blessing in disguise, saving the town from having to monitor the swimming in that area.
