U/Alphabe-Thursday

Portable shade

U is for umbrella or umbrolly

Remember summer - seems so long ago, doesn't it - and that fashionable, colourful accessory,  the beach UMBRELLA?

 A very hot day

In this photo, it looks like some beach goers preferred to  be in the sun.

Sharing their shade

Summer was just a couple weeks ago here, although we've had a few cool nights. But I do love the beach umbrellas because that is something that requires a rather long drive to see!

Judy @ daily yarns said...

I love that they are all each of a different color and pattern.

I think we are going to need a rain version of these pretty soon.

In Italian, with scarce fantasy, we call it 'obrellone' (big umbrella)!

You mean this wasn't take yesterday?

It's finally cooling down here a bit. Sixty-one degrees this morning. I almost needed a jacket on the golf course.

Lovely umbrellas!

A lot of your compadres have made their way back south...the roads and cafes are filling up again. Yikes!

Marie said...

Summer doesn't seem so long ago here...it was still close to 100 up until today and now it is finally in the high 70s! We certainly have sand...but no ocean! :-(

Along These Lines ..... said...

We're still summery, just a few miles from the Gulf. Haven't put the brollies away yet.

Danielle said...

I just love photographing beach umbrellas...they are always so colorful. You did a great job with these photos!

Jamie said...

I, too love photos of beach umbrellas. They add so much color to the scenery. Great photos!

Heather said...

Great photos of beach umbrellas! It does seem like summer is so far away now!

Mary said...

Fun brellaa and summer thinking. I love summer best.

Small City Scenes said...

Summer??? Why does it disappear so fast. Monday was our last sunny and warm day and we took full advantage of it by playing and hiking.

No rain yet--it has been 80days since any measurable rain but Friday it is supposed to start in again. Well we do need it.

The umbrellas are quite gorgeous. MB

LONDONLULU said...

Love those bright splashes of umbrollies!:) I needed this dose of sunshine, thanks! (The weather channel didn't forecast all this rain.) Summer, come back!

anitamombanita said...

Reminds me of the beaches in southern France where you see so many colorful umbrellas in the sand. Fun!!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I'm lonesome for Florida now~

Portable shade is a very good thing to have.

I'm counting the days until summer returns! Although I got a taste of warmer weather when we were back in Mississippi over the weekend. :)

JDaniel4's Mom said...

What lovely pictures! They make me want to go to the beach!

edenhills said...

I am still happy to say farewell to summer. I love that last shot of the umbrellas!

VBR said...

As the weather here gets cooler, it is fun to see the umbrellas and beaches!!

Tracy said...

Sun!!! What sun my umbrella has been for rain

Claudia Willison said...

Great umbrella shots! I never really go to very crowded beaches anymore, but I definitely can relate to your first shot :)

Thank you for visiting my Alphabe- Thursday: Underwater photos @ ImagesByCW

Judie said...

My beach umbrella stays in the back of my car so I can be ready at a moment's notice to go to our beautiful beach!!

Naperville Now said...

I'll return to this post in about 4weeks just so I can remember what the sun looks like.

Pondside said...

As I listen to the first rain of the season, I'm thinking of another sort of umbrella!

Jenny said...

We take this kind of umbrella to sporting events in the spring, summer and fall here in Arizona.

It's the only shade around.

People gather under the shade like ants to a picnic.

I'm glad the weather is cooler now. I'm not missing my umbrella at all!

Thanks for a fUn link for the letter "U".
