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.

Sunday morning coming down.
In the early hours of Saturday it started raining, and by daylight the Lamblog courtyard rain gauge, which measures up to ‘only’ 50mm, had overflowed. But the nearby Steiglitz Wharf weather station, just twelve kilometres down the bay, officially measured 172mm between 2am and 11am, so on Lamb Island we probably copped somewhere near that during the same period. And as I post this, on Sunday morning, it’s still coming down, albeit less heavily. So to cheer us all up (well, me, anyway), below is a bright-and-sunny shot I took last week from the corner of our deck shown in the top picture.
Late update:And then, on Sunday evening, everything cleared up for this tranquil twilight. Nice.
