A mooring made in heaven 

What they say about houses


I built and bought several homes over the years. One of the most frequented insights an architect or banker shares is: “You can change a lot in your home (of course, they’ll offer their services) but you can’t change the location”. 

Too true!

The same goes for your neighbors, kind of. 

When I bought the new ship this summer, the owner of the ship yard sold me on his wisdom:

“A waterside property in this country costs millions, if you actually get one at all. If you do, chances are that your neighbor is an asshole.

When you meet an asshole out here: you simply turn the key.” 

I think about this ever minute when I enjoy the sunsets on the river and I couldn’t be more grateful about a little personal wisdom that helped me to simply do it and buy the boat and with THIS mooring.
