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 limited material on a small island, some posts are being recycled/updated from earlier.

A bit of a blow to some long weekend plans.

Last weekend, with its Monday public holiday tacked on, might’ve seemed like a great opportunity to get out onto the bay. But only if you hadn’t checked the weather forecast. The fact was, we had southerlies up to forty kilometres per hour (and occasionally gusting way above that), and that caused a few problems, especially for the Redland Bay Coast Guard, Water Police, and the Volunteer Marine Rescue people, who spent much of their weekend towing boats that were in trouble because they’d broken down, as well as trying to secure various others that’d broken their moorings. But at least nothing tragic happened.
