As we were enjoying lunch on the shaded patio of Hacienda del Sol, this cheerful sunbrella caught my eye. The staff didn't need to unfurl it as no one wanted to sit at an ouside patio table in the noon time sun - even under the shade of this umbrella!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
