    Some experts say vomit...others say it comes out the other end. It's an intestinal blockage...brought on by a build up around the indigestible squid beaks and other chitin that the sperm whale eats...only sperm whale produce it. Sometimes they pass or vomit this blockage....and some times the whale dies from it. Either way it ends up floating on the sea where it eventually makes it's way to the shore. It oxidizes in the sun and sea and ages like a fine wine or a good cheese.

    Got a call today for Father's Day from my kids godfather on san sal island.....one of the ambergris boys got 2 pieces here in french bay for a total of 12 pounds !! A great pay day !! My friend E.B. has been looking everyday lately no ambergris but he got 14 antique glass fishing floats in one day at about the same time as the ambergris find. Both finds on the south of the island at french bay beach. You just never know where !! It's on the beaches that no one walks. Although I have found it on the pink sand beach in elutherea too. Many people had walked by and not known what it was...many native islanders also did not know either. Heres french bayClick image for larger version.

    EVER WONDER WHERE YOUR THOUGHTS COME FROM?

    ​The Key...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4D-RjlJ6vWw

    8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8,9


    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

    The out islands....extreme destination beach combing is what I'm talking about.....the only real way to do it is to anchor by boat and explore the remote out islands. If well planned and provisioned a successful expedition can be made and a sale at nassau island when done !!

    Yes...its a fixative...that means when used in a perfume it makes the smell stay on your body and lingere. If you pick it up and dont handle it gently it will get all over you...its like grease In away. I've gotten it on me and been banned from the house for 2 and 3 days at a time by my wife.....its a really bad smell....a gagging type sickeningly sweet smell !!
