If anyone is on the fence about whether or not to take this class, TAKE IT. Simon and Jeff are both very skilled instructors and taught an excellent ocean skills class today. They have a very nice teaching style and gave all of us a lot of personal attention. So...don't pass up this opportunity if you want to learn rock gardening skills.

That's too bad, Al. Maybe if you had left out the word "rock" and just called it a gardening class, she might have taken you up on it.
