259/366: grand umbrella opening 2002

In December 2002, ten years ago, it was time to take our barbecue entertainment area upmarket. To this end, we bought a fabulous new heritage green umbrella and an outdoor setting. It’s hard to believe that we have had these for almost ten years now.

Replacing the almost twenty-year old wooden setting was well overdue. The new ensemble was and still is both very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.

The umbrella rests on a cantilever base so you can swivel it to shade different areas of the four metre diameter. At that stage the conifers had not grown sufficiently to shade us from the hot afternoon summer sun. Unfortunately, this week I am getting quotes to have them lopped in half!

And to complete the picture, Zorro just happens to be seated elegantly in front.

Of course we had a celebratory barbecue to officially welcome the new additions.
