Casual Summer Headband Series: Keeping it Casual in the British Virgin Islands!

Last month we introduced you to the contest that is taking over the world, literally.  Here is this week's entry, from the picturesque Prickly Pear Island in the British Virgin islands. 


Prickly Pear is an island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. It is uninhabited but has a beach bar and recreational water sports facility on it. It is located on the north side of North Sound, opposite Virgin Gorda.

The entire island is, theoretically, a nature refuge, but the Government controversially granted a lease of the crown lands for the restaurant and water sports facility. Adding to the controversy, the tenant has for years refused pay the appointed rent, but the Government will not support the National Parks in taking proceedings for the arrears or terminating the lease.

I'd be remiss if I didn't take this opportuinity to give a special shout-out to all of THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON's virgin followers.
