Limehouse Annual Pancake Breakfast

Chives in my window box.
Pancake Breakfast
We had some snow Friday night which didn't last and all melted when the sun came out.

Saturday was our Annual Pancake Hike with my hiking group and I led a short family hiking through the Limehouse Conservation area.

The little town of Limehouse puts on their annual pancake breakfast and after the hike we all went for pancakes, homemade baked beans, maple syrup and butter tarts.
Downtown Limehouse - Memorial Hall
Over 100 years ago Limehouse was a booming town, where lime was mined.  There's a lot of history in this small little Town.  All that remains is this old Methodist Church - now the town's Memorial Hall and a couple dozen houses.   The industry that was once here has long since gone and now the area where the lime was mined is a conservation area.  There are lots of old relics of times gone by in the conservation area.

  4. That looks like a beautiful place. I those that old stone bridge by the mill is hauntingly beautiful, too. Oh, and pancakes are good anytime, anywhere :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
