Our lives revolve round ferry times so it is really irritating to rush for one only to be told you can't get on board because it is full. Yup, poor Buffalo Wilbur had to wait for 40 minutes for the next ferry today because the 9.10am one was completely packed with tourists. They promised him an extra ferry but what they really meant was "wait for the next ferry".
Autumn is peak tourist season for Mui Wo and a bit of forward planning could have solved the problem.
It would have helped if the ferry people had communicated with each other and let the big ferry stay on when they saw the crowds at the pier. Instead, they replaced it with the small one -- which was barely enough to contain the tourists, let alone regular commuters.
