    Yep. I've also seen coffee cans, buckets, etc. filled with cement used here.

    That got me thinking (be VERY afraid) that I actually have a bunch of 'tent weights' that you can fill with sand. We use these on our 10' x 20' tent booths when exhibiting for CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm at various events. I can pack them empty and then just fill them full of wet sand when we're at each beach. Of course, if it's too windy we'd just pass on the umbrella idea.

    Why not buy a beach chair with a canopy? I know the canopy might flop around in the wind, but I bet you could find a way to secure it with some string or wire.
