Get Away On the Bay

My friends, Hugh and Sylvia, are always on the hunt for a good sunset- especially one that involves sky and  water, and that's how they found- Kentmorr. Kentmorr is a bar, a seafood joint and a private beach all rolled into one. An oasis just across the Bridge. You can get there by boat, car or airplane. (Yes airplane- which explains the big honking garages some of the neighbors have.) 
I can't decide what I like best about it. The food is good. Eat indoors, or on the dock or take carry-out down to the beach.  No, wait I know what I like best- you can get a beer at the bar and carry THAT  down to the beach and sit in a hammock chair. (Sylvia says they have good Bloody Marys, too, so bear that in mind) Though the place has been there since the 1950s, owners Dave Harper and his wife Tammy took over in 1993. Dave, a California boy has installed hammocks as well as a few seasonal palm trees on the beach to add to that island feel. Only about an hour from DC- it's a world away from here.
