Our friends, who arrived yesterday, were out and about somewhere. We got settled in and couldn't decide whether to nap, go sleep at the pool, or get something to eat. Geoff's stomach won out. We headed out to the promenade along the coast and surveyed the many restaurant/pizza places along the walk. We settled on one down at the end of the line. If you do nothing else in Naples, you eat pizza! We ordered a margarita pizza and took in the view. Keeping our eyes out for J, who loves to run. After a while, Geoff says, quite casually, "oh, there goes J now". Sure enough he was running down the promenade. We hailed him down and said we would meet up at the pool.
Finished the fabulous pizza and headed back to the hotel to see the rest of the gang. J, Paula, and Elaine were at the pool. Jim was napping in the room. Hung out for a bit and made plans to meet at 7pm for dinner. Before going back to our room, we walked up to the market for water. They say the tap water is fine, but I'm not taking any chances. Got back and hit the sack!

After dinner we walked back towards the hotel for some to die for gelato. The evening was absolutely beautiful. Perfect temperature and no wind. We topped it off with a nice walk down the promenade. It is a very lively place at night with lots of families and locals. It was had to pick out the tourists. Certainly not too many Americans.
Not too many photos today. Right now it is definitely time for bed.
