Kent Narrows

The Chesapeake Bay has its share of marinas with resort-like amenities: we are lucky enough to live at BMC Harborview.  Down in Friendship, Maryland, Herrington Harbour South is an eco-friendly resort. Cambridge has the Hyatt which is a kid-friendly retreat with adult-only areas. This past weekend we returned to another resort marina that we hadn't visited in a while: Mears Point Marina in Kent Narrows.

After a week of rain the skies cleared for two sunny and mild temperature weekend days. Perfect for spending time laying by the pool:

Don't worry parents, there is a kiddie pool for the little guys:
There is also a snack and alcohol bar in the pool area.

The marina also caters to social activities between slip holders. There are many green spaces with pavilions for cookouts.
While it would be difficult to walk to any town from the marina, the area is a small hub for restaurants. We had dinner on the deck at Harris Crab House and Seafood Restaurant. They were our first crabs of the season and they were meaty and tasty. Afterwards, we had to venture over to Red Eye's Dock Bar for entertainment. Unfortunately, the temperate day led to a windy and cold night so the bar wasn't its normal buzz of energy.
No biggie, we were there with friends and made our own fun.

After a nice cruise home on Sunday I decided it was time to dock the boat myself.... but more on that in another post... it really deserves its own recognition... check back later this week.
