    And don’t steel from visitors, whether from here at home, or from abroad.
    People in Cane Garden Bay, and all over the islands, are working hard in the Tourism Industry.
    Don’t make it harder for everybody else, and unsafe and inhospitable to our guests.
    So Sorry for the students from Anegada.
