    3)  A Cold, Rainy Day: When you get up in the morning, and if you see that it is a wet day, bring a warm jacket, an extra warm sweater, and a change of warm socks and pants and an extra pair of shoes (ie: assume that everything will get wet during the grape picking). If you have rain gear (poncho etc, which you can buy in the Chinese stores very cheaply) and it is raining, bring it. Thefarm has a coveredareaforthe lunch &party

    4)  A Hot Sunny Day: Sunscreen, shades, a hat and a bottle of water (there is no water out in the fields).

    Even if it is a nice day, you should bring at least a light jacket, in case it gets cold in the evening. Don’t forget to bring your camera for some unforgettable shots (Your family and friends won’t forgive you if you don’t!).

    But much more than grape picking, great food, a barbecue, music fiesta,

    dancing, and an insight into real, live Spanish culture, this is a perfect time to

    bond as the new Canterbury &Gracia Lorca Club sets out on yet another
