Rockin the Kiwi Summer in Granity

the West Coast at its best!

My home away from home

Perhaps its true, once a West Coaster always a West Coaster (though technically I grew up on the east coast of Vancouver Island).  We discovered Granity about 6 years ago on Google Earth.  We were searching for surf spots & found our little slice of heaven.

Granity is known for its rocks: it has one of the best rock collecting beaches I’ve ever come across.

Rocks, Rocks & more Rocks

Actually, Granity is  probably better known because the Stockton coal mine is just up the hill from the township.  Most of the residents have some sort of connection to the mine.  For us, we rent the house out to people who “work up the hill”.

The House, aka The Canadian High Commission’s Granity Outpost:

I was surprised to see the house has been popular on YouTube.  The previous owner was part of a series of videos on Granity.

Here’s  their tribute to scones.  It’s got some great shots of  Granity & the beach…Enjoy!
