Local Cape Codders, Len Thonus and his son, Chase, 2, of Harwich, MA and Nancy Lyons and her twin daughters Alyssa and Kaitlyn, both 8, of Chatham, MA, visit the Chatham Fish pier, usually teaming with boats and fishermen.  "We're amazed at how quiet and calm it is," says Lyons of the Harbor which sits empty save for one or two vessels in preparation for approaching Hurricane Earl in Chatham, Mass., on Cape Cod Friday, Sept. 3, 2010.  Most of the boats were moved to Ryder's cove, a nearby cove which is more protected. (AP Photo/Julia Cumes)
