Shade

Hi guys! My friend and I are standing on the pavement waiting for a bus but it's been over half an hour and the bus hasn't arrived and it's so sunny. I want to tell my friend to go over there that has a tree to stay away from the sun. Which one of the two sentences below sounds the most suitable in this situation?

1. Let's stay in the shade over there under the tree.
2. Let's get in the shade over there under the tree.

Thanks so much!

2) is better.

The wording of 1) ("Let's stay in the shade") implies that you and your friend are already in the shade of the tree.
