ABC Wednesday: U is for Umbrella

Link
A couple of years ago when we were visiting Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, there were a lot of people under umbrellas during the reenactments.

The soldiers were toughing it without umbrellas but the spectators were under their umbrellas.

I found the next two shots in my photo archives too with a different kind of umbrella.

These umbrellas give people shade while eating.

Umbrellas can be so useful whether in the rain or blazing sun. Nice shots.

I wonder how any of these reinactors can stand all those wool uniforms.. yuck...

I love my umbrella when walking in the rain. Or eating in the shade.

Wool and rain, not a good combination. But it could have been worse - I would hate to get soaking wet in plate armour.

A useful thing an umbrella, out here on the "rain" coast we use them a lot for the first reason.

We have so little rain here in this semi desert that I never seem to be able to find an umbrella when I do need one....

I love those umbrellas - I also love the bright yellow ones we have at Bridge's Restaurant down at Granville Island in Vancouver! Great take for our U week,

These are great shots. The reenactment must have been good fun. The hard-core reenactors around here would do just about anything to go on with the show.

Your umbrella shots are fun. Seems like forever ago when we could eat outside.

I love umbrellas and we rarely have the chance to use them here in sunny New Mexico!

Couldn’t resist dropping by after seeing the topic of your post, Carver. That is an interesting capture of the soldiers with only historical hats to keep their heads dry while most everyone else has an umbrella. :)

You have a nice collection of umbrellas. Like a lot of other Oregonians, when we're there we hardly ever bother with umbrellas -- we just dash in and out between showers.

Nice umbrellas and nice pics.

Beautiful shots! Visiting late today. Happy sky watching.
