We had scheduling issues for the rest of the month so we decided to push this final checkout up and go some place close. We all got in the water, got to the platform and trimmed ourselves out. Once everyone was comfortable, we went back to Peace Rock. I had given the more comfortable divers flash lights. Everyone wanted to descend down the rope except for Bro Lowe. I had David stay with him while I took the rest of the group across the back of the cavern. They thought it was really neat! After I got them back to the upper portion of the cavern, I took David back through. We played around in the upper portion of the cavern and in the air bell until people started getting low on air. At that point we made our ascent and exited the water.
