Yesterday we made it onto new waters. The River Wissey. I went into a Tweet frenzy as we went down. The guide says turn onto lake .... Stunning!
And then three lots of lovely GOBA moorings ahead.... More of these later. We'd heard that there was a building site next to the moorings at Hilgay so weren't disappointed to find they looked less than attractive. On we went.
So, what had we wondered... We had wondered why so many boaters went up and down the Wissey and now we know why. The lack of mooring opportunities.
We stopped at Hilgay for a quick run to the butcher/store and we carried on to the fab GOBA moorings we passed early on. Still empty. HOORAH.
Not 20 minutes after we moored another boat pitched up and ... Of course .... Ignored ALL the empty moorings and moored 3 feet from our bow ...
