Walking the dogs down the beach this morning and looking for ambergris, I found this waiting for me instead.

Hi Kari - Wonderful website with great information - thanks for adding me. As to the ambergris - no, I haven't found any yet but haven't been looking that long and we still have a number of whales swimming past so I'm sure it's only a matter of time (and luck) before I find some :)

Nice blister pearl

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for sharing your wonderful blister pearl with us. It would make a nice pendant.

I was just reading about ambergris the other day, how the Spaniards and Portuguese would hunt for this. Have you found some of it yourself?

Here's to happy hunting for both pearls and ambergris.
