08.35 am – Woke up to another heart healthy breakfast.

10.46 am – After these 3 were ready, we began our day by waiting for the tram.

11.10 am – Arrived at the location where

the works of art from Stadel Museum in Germany were making a stopover in Melbourne.

This place was called the National Gallery of Victoria.

Alfred Felton was an Australian entrepreneur, art collector and philanthropist who donated ALL his assets to NGV.

We brought out our double ticket bought on Day 6 during our visit to ACMI and

entered the European Masters showroom. I saw both Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpieces besides many others. Have you seen a Picasso/Van Gogh before? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

I also saw lots of antiques from Egypt, China, etc.

01.46 pm – After all the walking looking at paintings, we arrived at St Kilda the beach.

We took a stroll along the many, many restaurants along the stretch and decided on Lilydale’s free range chicken for lunch.

Or is it called Chook Bar’s free range chicken?

After lunch, we started walking towards the beach.

The Street Cafe is a highly rated cafe by Australians.

02.43 pm – Upon arrival at St Kilda beach, I saw tall and short palm trees.

Tall.

Short.

This pathway makes me feel like as if there’s a palace at the other end.

the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron.

02.58 pm – Continued walking and ended up at St Kilda pier.
