Exploring mulga country on our bikes. Mondays are usually reserved for maths in 'bus school' but yesterday we mixed things up a bit. In the morning the boys and I went for a long walk and conducted a bird survey along the river, then started reading a new library book written by Anangu about Maralinga (where the British government conducted its atomic bomb testing in the 1950s). We had the choice of quiet reading or audio books over lunch. And some Lego construction and home economics (folding washing and putting it away) in the afternoon. The day finished with a bike ride to the river again in the late afternoon, with Sam joining us when she finished her long working day just before sunset. Not a bad way to start the week! 
A special welcome to my new Instagram followers after Sunday's news story about our isolation in the outback on @abcbrisbane by @shelley_lloyd_bris! Thanks for the kind words and comments everyone.

Last night’s bush television.

Last night's bush television. A crackling fire, red dirt on our boots, shooting stars, a full moon rising and dingoes howling in the far distance. This is how I imagined #buslife to be.#OutbackQueensland #SeeAustralia #ThisIsQueensland #campfire

This is beautiful Moreton Island. I took the boys on a day cruise to Tangalooma Wrecks this week.

This is beautiful Moreton Island. I took the boys on a day cruise to @tangaloomaislandresort earlier this week. We snorkeled around The Wrecks and spent many hours swimming in the crystal clear waters that surround the island. I even managed to get a few quick pictures with my drone. It’s been eighteen months since we visited our favourite island and former home (we lived at the Cape Moreton lighthouse for five years) and it was wonderful to be back, if only for the day! ~ Keiran.

PS – this shot and many other of my Moreton Island images are available for purchase as prints and canvas wall art over at www.keiranlusk.com.au now!

Cast away. And pretending, just for a couple of hours, to be like Tom Hanks on my very own island (albeit with a slightly lighter and 'whiter' beard)! This is Hays Inlet near the bridge to Redcliffe. I launched my @kayaks2fish kayak from Brighton Park and spent a couple of hours exploring this fascinating area. I even managed a little swim before the sand flies found me and chased me home again.

The weekend wrap. Lots of family time spent outdoors, enjoying some gorgeous winter weather (Queensland style). We enjoyed a family paddle through the Boondall Wetlands in our new @kayaks2fish kayak (yep, we managed to all squeeze into the one kayak!). We spent a lazy afternoon down along the Sandgate foreshore, whilst the kids played on the beach and ran around on the tidal flats at sunset. We enjoyed a sunny Sunday morning by the water and photographing my favourite tree at Brighton. And, for balance, I spent Sunday afternoon and evening in Bronte the bus, getting some more of the 24v wiring done.

Tonight's magnificent sunset show over Lake Samsonvale near #Brisbane. The boys and I were treated to a most beautiful scene! I took a day off today from working on the bus, instead enjoying a sunrise kayak in the Boondall Wetlands, a picnic lunch and splash about at Cedar Creek with the boys, and then this incredible sunset at the lake tonight! A big thank you to everyone for their supportive comments and encouragement on my last post. It's been hard yakka getting the bus built this year but I can definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel! ~ Keiran

Collecting things. One of the many cicada exoskeletons that we found today! The boys and I went on another adventure today, enjoying a picnic lunch at Boombana in D'Aguilar National Park (Mt Nebo), a rainforest circuit walk and then a refreshing late afternoon swim at our new favourite spot - Cedar Creek near Samford. A great day out! And a lovely break from bus building! ~ Keiran

Escaping the Brisbane heat yesterday! We found a perfect little swimming spot at Cedar Creek near Samford. The water was simply delightful! It's the school holidays and I'm trying to find the balance between getting our bus conversion project done and creating a few adventures and experiences for the boys. They've been so patient with me and the time I'm putting into the bus (whilst Sam is away at work each day), so it was awesome to unwind and have a laugh together in the creek yesterday.
