We are glad to be in the sunshine and warm weather. We hoped it would work out that way when we decided to spend the winter in Arizona. And thankfully it has been mostly good weather here.
And with all the sunny weather, we sometimes need some shade. It is thinking about Springtime here, but still has a ways to go. The tree near our campsite is just budding.
I thought I'd see if I could come up with something with our beach umbrella to use here. My biggest challenge was the corkscrew end of the bottom pole. It works great in sand, not so great on hard packed gravel and packed dirt.
The PVC is just large enough for the corkscrew tip, but the rest of the umbrella needed to be stabilized inside so it didn't wobble. I accomplished this by some extra wood I had. I cut a couple of 6" pieces, then split them.
That's all for now on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Thanks for joining us!
Good idea on making your own shade. We may have to copy that ourselves.ReplyDelete
Very creative. Necessity is truly the mother of invention. Thanks for sharing your wonderful idea.ReplyDelete
Nice idea. Looks like it about covers the available space. Those sites look pretty tight.ReplyDelete
