umbrellas in rain and sun

In Lerwick - Shetland - in 2007 - with Iris May - in rain. The green umbrella blew away in Wick on the way home - sadly.

In Woodbridge - 2010 - LookFar - in sunshine.

14-20 hrs: Don't think it is sunny in Woodbridge just now! but I thought this summed up the differences rather nicely. We needed two umbrellas to keep the rain off for days in Lerwick - but notice that the town is very attractive in the background and a good time was had inspite of the rain. In Woodbridge last week, by contrast, the small umbrella is an essential sunshade - surrounded by dust and brown grass.
