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.
There’s not a comment facility, but if you have a question, you can use the email gizmo near the bottom of the right-hand column.

On Lamb Island, we elect to help each other out.

We Lamb Islanders voted yesterday at our community hall. And because we’re a small community (and even though many of us keep our political leanings to ourselves), we know who to expect to be handing out How-To-Vote guides for the main political parties. But when I arrived to vote around 1pm, there was something different. Alongside the local Labor stalwart, her daughter, whatever her own politics, had donned a Greens tee-shirt and was handing out Greens How-To-Vote guides so that the Greens lady could grab a quick lunch. Just another example of what makes Lamb Island such a friendly place to live.

(And yes, that’s a faked-up picture in order to respect the privacy of those involved.)
