The Classic Beach Umbrella

The Beach Umbrella, an accessories that will never go out of fashion, constantly changing in color but not in function or form. It evokes a sense of relaxation, sitting on the beach, covered with part shade and sunlight while the ocean breeze softly flows against you. Ahh...can you feel it already.

Great collection of photos. I remember one summer in Italy and how the umbrella was so important. So different from my So Cal youth.
Is there a coffee table book in your future on the beach umbrella? Could be fun.
