An escape was in order so it was off to Kent Island on the Eastern shore of Maryland. Had a fairly early start so had breakfast at Holly's...............................a real Roadfood worthy stop. Holly's Restaurant & Motel - Breakfast
I had the chipped beef on toast and it was really good. The waitress had worked there 20 years and loved her job so that has something to say about the owners and management.
Shopping at the Quennstown Outlet Mall was the next thing on list of things to do. After spending lots of money, it was off to Hilton Gardens Inn and Suites and time for a swim. After swimming, a relaxing half hour in the hot tub and off to room to just sit and read and look at the beautiful view.
A sudden rain storm with thunder and lightening made it necessary to drive to Annie's restaurant rather than to take the walk . Annie's Paramount Steak and Seafood House - Our Menu
Annie's is one of at least four seafood restaurants right in a very small area. After tonight, I would have only one more to try. For dinner, I selected 3 appetizers. I chose the oyster stew to begin, followed by oysters on the half shell, and to finish I chose the lump crabmeat cocktail.
They oyster stew was the very best that I had ever had. It was really wonderful. The oysters were ice cold and delicious. Alas, the crabmeat cocktail left a lot to be desired. The crab was not cold enough and had little flavor........................very disappointing. The wine was good and the service was excellent..............so it was a fun place to go.
The hotel serves a sort of buffet style breakfast, which I do not enjoy. So I went back to Holly's and had eggs, scrapple, and home fries. Same waitress as yesterday and by now we were old friends!
It was a great quick escape.
