We stopped off at the Ulster Museum, which is in Botanic Gardens, mainly to heat up. I also used it as an excuse to visit the beautiful John Lavery gallery "A Gift To The City" and I fell in love with two of his paintings, luckily for me they had lovely prints in the gift shop and now I am on the prowl for gaudy gilded picture frames.
I snapped photos of some exhibitions, we didn't see all of the museum. Overall the highlight of my day was visiting the Ruby Murray historical plaque at the Ulster Hall and getting those prints...
My next post on the Giant's Causeway is much more promising!

|The Green Coat. This was my favourite, I bought the print. The woman is of Lavery's wife, Lady Hazel, aka the American actress, Hazel Martyn.|
|I loved this painting, sadly they didn't have a print.|
