If you have to be stranded, you might as well be stranded somewhere nice. That might describe a recent article from the Associated Press that tells about a group of "high profile Louisiana couples" who had to spend several days on a remote Pacific Island when their plane had engine trouble on the way to Hawaii.
Their "bad" luck resulted in an unplanned stay on Christmas Island.
Sean Reilly of Baton Rouge said his brother Kevin wasn't too upset about being stuck on the island.
"Kevin is having a ball," he said. "He's a fly fisherman. He told me the only problem was there was a shortage of bone fishing flies."
