Beverly is beautiful this time of year.

It's clean now, mostly, and has plenty of fish. Too many boats? There's certainly a huge population out on the cape. My point of reference is the PNW where seals are pretty common but also distributed, not just in colonies.

They are out there, but you don't see them unless you are on the water. In the PNW they have a lot of rocks and coves to haul out in - which is why they like the areas where you find them on the cape. Best time to see more urban seals in the water is in April and May when they are hanging out where the herring buffet is open.

And when they figure out the Charles River locks during the herring run ... https://www.bostonmagazine.com/news/2016/04/12/charles-river-seal-boston

They can be found on the Harbor Islands, too: https://www.bostonharborislands.org/blog/seals/

The guppies have made the bay unaffordable.

We need affordable harbors and we need them now.
