  • HERE'S A BRIGHT idea for a grey year-end Saturday in Pennsylvania...

    Let's blow this joint and travel (in our minds' eyes) to St. Maarten/St. Martin in the Dutch/French Antilles!

    We can visit Fort Louis in Marigot, on the French part of the island...
  • FROM THE Fort, we can look down on Marche Marigot and out into the Caribbean....
  • OR, IF we're getting hungry from all that climbing back in Marigot, we can head on up the road (so named with consummate humor in that part of the world), dodging pedestrians, livestock, cyclists and an amazing variety of motor-driven conveyances, to Grand Case, where our favorite watering hole might be the Calmos Cafe...
  • WHERE THE beach is the most alluring place to plunk down, order a rum-based drink sporting a little Japanese umbrella, and the seafood delicacy of your choice...
  • AND, OF COURSE, there's no baguette quite like a French baguette...
  • AND, IF we get to feeling like a little beach time, we can make our way across the island from Grand Case to Orient Beach...
  • WHERE, IF we take it into our heads that wearing clothing is an outdated custom, we can shed the duds and prance about in the altogether (not recommended for individuals of a certain age and sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation)...

    Please make sure your seats are in the upright position and your tray tables secured, and wait until the aircraft has come to a complete stop at the terminal before unfastening your seat belts.

    Thank you for flying Fantasy Airlines. Please fly with us again!
