"If it's yellow, let is mellow; if it's brown flush it down". Siesta time when the shops in P'burg closed for two hours. Shops closed on Sunday except if a cruise ship was in port. Pinel before the cruise ships discovered it. Maho Beach before the cruise ships discovered it. The hustle and bustle of nightlife at Marina Royale in Marigot - the Piano Bar. Fewer cars and no motor scooters. The old Pelican Resort and Casino (Simpson Bay Resort) with construction of the "B" buildings beginning at 0700am right behind us. More airline choices (especially from NY) American, United, Delta, Eastern, PanAm, charters - fares around $300 round trip. Most of this from the 1980's.
