Watching the seals at  Chatham Pier
If you are looking for a place to watch the seals in Cape Cod there are two places I recommend you check out. The first is Chatham Pier, a little fishing dock and restaurant. We stopped there hoping to see seals and we were not disappointed. There were dozens swimming and playing almost within reach.

They follow the fishing boats as they all come in. One kind of sad thing we saw was one with a metal tracking device on his head. (See picture below) I don't know why humans have to be so cruel to animals but he seemed friendly enough still swimming pretty close to us.

This little guy had a tracking device on his head. Poor seal, but he seemed happy, swimming around, following the fishing boats.

Yak Arts

We found this little art store full of crafts and different random items. Very bright, colorful, artsy and original!

The Highland Light, 
also known as the Cape Cod Light

The Highland Light is an active lighthouse on the Cape Cod National Seashore in North Truro, Massachusetts. It is the oldest and tallest lighthouse on Cape Cod. The grounds are open year round, while the light is open to the public from May until late October, with guided tours available.

Marconi Beach

When you first get down to Marconi Beach you will see hundreds of people. They will be surfing, swimming, playing in the sand, flying kites and picnicking. But if you walk past them just a little further, you will have a good chance at seeing dozens of seals swimming in the waves.

Look closely, dozens of seals are playing in the waves right off shore.
