A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.

Going out on a limb, I’d say the view is enhanced.

Looking out from our deck, there’s a tall eucalypt with a lower branch that lost any interest in producing leaves a couple of years ago. Every now and again I wonder if it doesn’t detract from the view, but it’s too high for a regular mere human to reach, and not worth paying the island tree-climbing guy to rope himself way up there and cut it off, so it’s there until it eventually decides not to be. Besides, more evenings than not, a couple of the local kookaburras like to perch on it last thing before taking themselves off to bed – which, observed over a glass or two of Vin Blanc Crique de Jacob, in our opinion actually enhances the view anyway.
