Seal watching is big in this town. It may be as popular as bird watching, or even whale watching, which is available here, for a price.
I like the seals. They have friendly faces and a playful demeanor, and at times they seem aware — and pleased — that so many humans have come to see them.
These seals attract more than tourists. Out yonder in the deep blue Atlantic, off the coast of Cape Cod, there are great white sharks. And they eat seals.
