3- Yoga mat and yoga clothes      JoAnne Marshall will be leading a session on Sunday morning at 7:30 again this year.   will be prizes.

4. Lite jacket or sweaters or sweatshirt       weather in 70s during the stay and 50s in the evening

5. Comfortable walking shoes      You must make it to the Market to see the fish tossing.
