Granite Bay and Lucky Jim’s Gold Mine

Today we took the afternoon off from house projects and went for a drive to explore Granite Bay on the northern part of Quadra Island. At first we were a bit confused by the roads and the fact that Granite Bay is not a real town. That’s fine though, especially as we’d packed PB&J sandwiches.

On our return, we took a side trip to the former site of Lucky Jim’s Gold (silver & copper) mine. Phoebe enjoyed a trip where she could run free and test the water too.

It was a drizzly, foggy day at the bay, so the photos are quite dark. I wasn’t even sure that was a bird on the post until I checked this photo.

There are no markers, so we were glad we found the old equipment. Easy to miss the moss covered pieces.

And then we returned home along the winding roads, past the logging sites. We saw one person and perhaps 3 cars during the entire trip!
