Every year I countdown to summer, because winters are so long and brutal around here. But I forgot how hot and humid summer gets in DC. Ten minutes into the heat and we are looking for shade. I think we (husband and I) have an exceptionally low tolerance for heat. (Him, more than me!) We had plans to have another picnic, or spend the day in the park. We didn't do either. Sigh!
However, if you are visiting the Georgetown area, for shopping or just strolling around there is good news: Parasol Share Program! This program aims at promoting "Shop Georgetown, Stay Cool". You can pick up one of the 1,000+ Nylon custom-branded parasols from 50 participating stores in Georgetown and beat the heat all summer long, in style!
You can find the full list of participating ParasolShare locations at www.georgetowndc.com/parasolshare.
