    As mentioned in Monday’s weather post below, Saturday was an excellent day across Nelson County, VA. In the Rockfish Valley lots was taking place.

    The day started off with the monthly Rockfish Valley Community Center’s pancake breakfast. This thing is growing like crazy and the food is great! Be sure to make next one in July. It’s always the first Saturday of the month.

    Above, how can you refuse a breakfast like this. These two gals know good food when they see it…taste it rather!

    Al Stacey bacon
    Above, long before you get the food on the table they have to whip it up in the kitchen. Al Stacey, owner of Gaia Homes in Nellysford, fixes some yummy bacon on its way out to the serviing line.

    Pancake line
    Not to be outdone by the bacon, these folks were making up the pancakes right before they headed out the door with them. We had blueberry ones, they’re good, real good!

    There we all kinds of items on sale, lots of them!

    Yvette’s lamp find
    Yep, that’s Yvette headed out with her bargain, a lamp for the foyer. Just in time the other one we had just broke. A great find!
