May Photo Contest Winner
Tammy from Ohio sent us this stunning picture with the following comment, “I took this picture near the Sandbar when I was at AMI. Love the Sandbar, love the beach area near your restaurant and love the sunset watching area outside your patio. My sister and I have come down several years in a row. We were able to walk to everything from our cottage on Spring Avenue and the Sandbar was always one of our favorites.
Got to see people get married on the beach, got to listen to the jazz from your patio during Sunday Brunch as we were relaxing in the sun on the beach. When we came down the 2nd time it was already like coming home. Thanks for a welcoming staff and for having such a great place for all of us beach lovers!
Had to send this picture because it has it all – the water, the sun, the clouds, the seagulls. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Hope to make it down again this fall.”
We love to hear all the great memories our guests have made with us and when you come down in the fall you will now have a $50 gift card to enjoy!
If you would like to enter to win a $50 gift card like Tammy just submit your photo to [email protected] or post it to one of our Facebook pages, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram accounts by the last day of each month at 5 pm.
