Wetsocks - Diving, Kayaking, Boating, Yardwork, Anklebiters

Christmas came early this year when a friend gave me a pair of wetsocks. I live on the water, and often after a heavy rain, I have to walk through the grass with ankle-deep water for about a week. Thank you, Anita, for the Wetsocks.

For the past several years, I often had to over-dress to deal with ankle-biters. Not today.

These wetsox are great, mine are thin enough or my shoes are big enough, that I can wear them with dive booties or shoes.

The wetsocks protect my ankles while the dive booties or shoes are there just in case I step on something requiring a thicker sole or need better traction to keep from slipping.

Today I cleaned up after last night's storm, which included picking up broken branches in the yard, and pumping all the bilges on the boat.

I'm happy to say I was able to accomplish everything that I wanted to do without a single ankle bite from all those tiny bugs that like to hang out in the puddles in the yard.
