Daylesford visit #2

I went to the old Avent Garden book shop in downtown Daylesford and bought a couple of books ( a Robin Hood and a comic version of 'The Rescuers' which I read as a serial last year.) It is now called the Paradise Bookshop and isn't as good as the old Avent Garden especially upstairs which is a bit neglected. 


While there we also visited the old convent in Daylesford. It was once a Catholic boarding school. My wife did some work there when we lived in Daylesford in the 80s but the school re-located and the convent has become an art gallery, shop, cafe and function rooms.( The driveway below)
