Dive, Dive! A simple post-production fit for any umbrella to increase safety in the wet, and romance on the beach.
Install an umbrellascope.
This thin plastic tube comes in 3 lengths which fit together, with appropriately placed mirrors inside. This allows you to see above the umbrella-tarpaulin and thus provides protection against umbrella-related-sight-impairment injuries. Like walking into telegraph poles.
provides astronomic benefits of views of the stars, perfect for sheltering under with your honey, on the beach on a drizzly night.
The kit comes with rubber sealant, goggles, view-screen wiper (powered by batteries, and with settings to 'intermittent' and 'continuous') [thanks Waugs], an appropriately themed submarine-captain-uniform of your choice, and a picnic rug for the beach.

||[half] I had the same thoughts about rain and parades, and thanks for not ....ing on mine ;-)
||Well, if its THAT kind of parade we're talking about, then count me out
