A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only a limited amount of material on a small island, we’re now recycling selected earlier posts.

One of the neighbourhood nuts.

This is a macadamia nut hanging off a couple of trees on vacant land just along the road from our house. They’re there for the taking, although getting through their hard shell to the actual edible kernel can be a real hassle unless you have one of those special screw-down nutcrackers. If you use a hammer, you get a squashed nut full of shattered shell bits. How do I know this?
