Into Blue Lagoon Pearls, Shark Bay

There was a really lovely pearls workshop in the ocean.

Greg Ridgley, Director of Monkey Mia Yacht Charters Pty Ltd was also responsible for developing handling and processing methods to keep oyster shells disease free, and thus set standards for the rest of the pearling industry – which I found to be so so interesting.

I love how knowledge from different industries can cross over.

The more I learned about his and his achievements, the more my respect and admiration grew.

I just stood there listening to his speech, a bit dumbstruck, conceding that yes, this here is an amazing and inspirational man.

It made me hope that at the age of adult, I will have had a fulfilling, significant, successful, well-rounded life, surrounded by family, friends… plus with a lot of great stories to tell.

A dolphin pearls!

It’s no surprise that when a pearling company hunts for their perfect spherical pearls, there are lots of irregular, non-spherical, shaped pearls (called baroque pearls) out there too.

So it was a delight to discover these rare one-of-a-kind creations!
