Naples is a city in Collier County, Florida, United States and is a principal city of the Naples-Marco Island, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area. Naples is one of the wealthiest cities in the United States, with the sixth-highest per capita income in the country in 2012, and the second-highest proportion of millionaires per capita in the US. Real estate is among the most expensive in the country, with houses for sale in excess of $40 million. The city of Naples was founded during the late 1880s by former Confederate general and Kentucky U.S. Senator John Stuart Williams and his partner, Louisville businessman Walter N. Haldeman, the publisher of the Louisville Courier-Journal.

No manatee's this time of year, but everyone saw dolphins

They rented two boats from Naples Bay Resort to celebrate Father's Day with 15 family members, four of which are fathers: Lee Duquette, John Smythers, Joey Smythers and Stephen Rosenthal. Lee and John each drove a boat.

Gabriella and her big brother loved looking out and enjoyed the scenery. Someone always had a hold on Gabriella because she was fearless.
