Just before my Adriatic Cruise I received a beautiful hat in the mail. I didn’t even request it so it was like a gift from God because when you are going to be out in the hot sun all day it’s important to have a good hat (that’s stylish too). Tula Hats are created by a Texas couple who lived in Mexico City and discovered a factory that’s been producing hand-woven palm hats for over four centuries. The hats are available in all shapes and sizes for both men and women and are UPF 50+ protected. They are available in many garden centers, boutiques and shops across the U.S. and Canada. FYI: My hat that’s pictured here retails for $33.
