    Default Pearl harvest in Indonesia

    Some of you may already know that Betty Sue King and I were recently fortunate to be invited to help with the harvest of south sea pearls on a pearl farm in Indonesia.
    I have just finished the long blog entry with many photos. it is here
    It was an incredible experience. Hard work but truly memorable.

    I am sure the blog post is wonderful...my antivirus software won't let me open the page. And ironically, it gives me this warning: Name:  Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 7.56.13 PM.jpg

    Pearlescence, I am sad I can't open your blog, my antivirus stops it... I don't know why.

    If you can't get on from the link here you might be able to access direct from the website home page where the blog is in the social box to the right side.
    I have no idea why it is being blocked - it's a standard wordpress blog

    So sorry, Pearlescence, I have tried to look at your blog through your own website, it don't work too. My antivirus (Kapersky) says that it's a malware page. Maybe something wrong is staying in your link?
