I'm going to go with: Motorized retractable awning, because there are times when the sun is too much, living on the beach...

There can also be ordinances that say that you cannot put up a permanent awning over a sun deck like that without getting it through the architectural review committee or the home owner's association (or both). Being west coast, you also have those seismic issues occasionally. When you claim it is a "temporary retractable awning", you can get away from a bunch of hoopla. Did it have an anemometer to tell it to retract if the wind gets too gusty? My dad has an under-mount motorized one with an anemometer to automagically put it away if the wind starts to pick up.
