Welcome back from what I hope was a lovely weekend.
How about this great sun shade idea? More sun protection than an umbrella and more airflow than a tent. It's called the Sombrilla and was designed by two beach-loving women in Melbourne, Australia to give protection from harmful sun rays.
I love the bright patterned fabrics. No need to save this for the beach. Wouldn't it be perfect when camping, on picnics or in the backyard for shade?
