A Walk Through Naples (December 12th)

Carri arrives at noon at LAX and will have enough time to rest before joining Aunt Kaye, us and many others for the walk! As for the streets, it's unanimous: driving around Naples is tight, very tight. Narrow streets with cars parked each direction or alleys wide enough for one car to enter is what you can expect. A wait for a car or two to pass, backing up once or twice and watching out for the kids on their scooter boards and bicyclists peddling along, should keep you fully occupied. It is not a place where you should drive fast and by all means, err on the side of caution.

Naples is a neighborhood of Long Beach, California, United States built on a series of islands located in Alamitos Bay . Naples consists of three separate islands, divided by canals which open into the bay. The streets on the island have Italian names. The center of Naples features a large fountain which serves as a popular meeting spot.
