|I could not resist posting what looks like a rubbing...I am a sucker for all things Darwin.|
|See the detail below as this is back painted and embellished on glass.. You would swear it was raised letters, but it is completely flat. So glad someone is still doing this technique.|

|Fish soup with garlic sauce and Parmesan topped crouton.|
|Beet salad with creamy goat cheese was a little funky.|
|Darwin at this time was still waiting for his fish and chips but eventually had haddock and chips twice and with a full English breakfast once to complete his must have food in the UK.|
I know I should be showing photos to you of the roaring fire and the cozy bar at The Wild Duck Inn, part of the Lucky Onion group, and the abundant plates of food. This includes Cornish mussels in a cider and bacon sauce, roast pork with crackling, roast potatoes, carrot and parsnip, cauliflower cheese and Yorkshire pudding (with no room for pudding dessert) but instead I am including these moss covered rocks and toad stool seat because they photographed better than the rest and were more symbolic of the lovely drive through the country side we took to get to this eatery.

|Lovely little cow sculpture in the garden of the The Bell. It was actually snowing when I took this image which appears to be in the fog.|
One more day in London...watch this space for the last blog from our travels once we return home.
