The Old Mill at Avaco Village

I have a plethora of photos sitting on hard drives, gathering dust. Interspersed with more recent experiences, I’m going to share some of my old adventures in a new series of nostalgic trips down memory lane.

The first foray into the past is to the Mill at Avaco Village
in the Wicklow Mountains, Ireland.

The quaint old mill is in a charming and picturesque setting.

It’s a great opportunity to find out more about weaving and to pick up some really nice wooly souvenirs.
