before I head off to the next house sit on Lamb Island. I'm really looking forward to that. The island is in a group of four just off Redland Bay, and accessed by a water taxi that departs from Redland Bay approximately every half hour. The islands are Russell, Lamb, McLeay, and Karragarra. Each island has it's own rather smart jetty, and the trip is pretty fast. There is no other way onto the islands. Your boat, or someone else's. Helicopter? Out of my price bracket. Karragarra and Lamb are the smallest islands. Lamb Island has a small shop. McLeay and Russell are much bigger and have more facilities for shopping. Most folk shop on the mainland. Greater range of products and somewhat cheaper although you need to take into account the $12 return trip on the water taxi.
