It rained non stop the night so when we got out the next day we are both wearing our wellies.
I got mine from Fiona and I havent stopped wearing it since!

And theres so much freedom when you go out wearing wellies especially at the beach! I usually wear my rubbershoes before and I am always just a witness to my son when he is at play. A recorder, a photographer but never a playmate.

And he cant go far too as he needs to be at certain distance to me especially at the beach. #
But with wellies we play together. We make a mess and we go as far as we can walk!

And when he needs some time to himself to play imaginary things that doesnt need an adult in it
I can play with my camera and I can go near my subject too!

I know that its common sense of course to always go wearing wellies but I am from a country where flood can go as high as my chest and wearing wellies is well, bonkers. I dont own one at home and when I got here it took me some time to embrace it! Now I am embracing it! Tight!
I love my wellies! And here is my son using his to crushed the icebergs!

Loving the look of your new wellies! When it's not summer, wellies is the best footwear to use on the beach, especially if you don't really want to get wet. Looks like Sebastian is loving it too :) #countrykids

Oh Merlinda I'm so pleased you are enjoying your lovely Rockfish wellies. I must say I love the pair you choice, they are like waterproof fashion boots! Thank goodness we don't have floods like you are used to from your childhood. Wellies are definitely the answer here and perfect for keeping up with Sebastian on the beach. Great creativity in his iceberg games and such a cute video.

Thank you for joining me on CountryKids

I brought a pair of wellies last year, my first ever pair since I was a child and I wondered why I didn't do it earlier! Admittedly I rarely wear them as we don't really need them much in Cyprus but they are great on the beach in winter!

Loving the new wellies! It looks like you had so much fun. I'm the same-always behind the camera, observing the children playing but it is lovely to observe them, especially when they're all playing together nicely!

Rockfish wellies are fab aren't they - I loved the ones I was sent through Country Kids too and they've had a lot of wear! Glad you are managing to enjoy getting out in them too - being able to play more with your son and getting closer for photos. Love that photo of the pier :-) #countrykids

Oh wow such gorgeous wellies! I agree, I feel like I can do anything and go anywhere in wellies! They are the best, and the children love it when I can jump in muddy puddles with them. Though I need a pair without holes in before winter sets in! #CountryKids

Oh your wellies are fantastic! I'e always loved wellies, being from Scotland it's kind of essential, totally understand they would be pointless from where you are from. I keep trying to convince my husband to get wellies, but he never has, weird! Thanks for linking up to #Whatevertheweather :) x
