The main purpose of a parasol is to keep the sun off.........like a parasol on a babys pram.......an umbrella is to keep the water off.

Knowing me both Flounder :lol: . I do like a glass or 10 at social occasions, but I do remember thinking its the bloody August bank holiday BBQ, why is it raining, then I remembered which country I was in :lol: . At that event I was the first one out with garden parasol followed by a few others, then gazebos appeared the whole street looked like a refugee camp. August Bank Holiday BBQ's you can guarantee the rain :evil:

Hope you have sensible flight time Flounder :D , be sure to take some nice pics when you are away (plants).
One thing is for certain you will spend quite a bit of your time away under a umbrella/parasol, unless you like intense icon_sunny all day

Could actually be useful - if it lets visible sunlight through but blocks UV, could be nicer than that nasty greasy sticky suncream stuff for preventing sunburn. icon_thumright
