Thanks, Randy, great point. While I am confident in my own open water safety
skills, I am not a qualified guide so I cannot assume liability for the
group's safety. So unless there is someone willing and able to guide a trip
to Cypress Island, we'll have to save that for another time and find
something a little easier so anyone can join in.
