Pearl Farm at Monkey Mia

During our trip on the Aristocat II today we paid a visit to a pearl farm
which is on a pontoon in the bay. This particular pearl farm gained a lot
of recognition through the "Farmer wants a wife" program as Jamie who is one
of the owners was a recent contestant. Jamie wasn't at the pontoon today
(apparently he and his mother were working in the pearl shop in Denham) but
we met his father and his brother.

Jamie didn't succeed in getting a wife from being a contestant on the
program, but it certainly put Monkey Mia on the map and increased the
tourist numbers into the area so was very worthwhile from that perspective.
We even heard the rumour that he only entered for the benefit of the family
business but who knows.
