The morning started with breakfast in the dining room at the Duke of Marlborough...the choices were cereal and milk, toast, yogurt, croissants..or full English breakfast of egg, ham, sausage and baked beans with a fried tomato. Tough call for some, but I am on vacation in a foreign country and therefore have little time for grains, dairy products …

... I'm not denying my ability to manage it all but I'm also not denying that I do everything I can to make everyone believe there is nothing to fear of these places, even when I know or experience differently. Being able to tackle everything on your own may seem like a great thing but at many times lately I'm seeing it differently. We are social beings, with a need for interaction, we require support ...

... was originally intended to be a gift to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, from a grateful nation in return for military triumph against the French and Bavarians at the Battle of Blenheim. However, it soon became the subject of political infighting, which led to Marlborough's exile, the fall from power of his duchess, and irreparable damage to the reputation of the architect Sir John Vanbrugh..The Churchills and ...

... which I still do not understand). I then had lunch outside in the water terrace garden. It was interesting to think about the family that lives there dining outside with that view! It was a perfect end to a beautiful day.
I warn you, I have a tendency to take photos of minor architectural details and random trees (but that's for my mother). It turns out, I took almost as many pictures today as I did at the airshow, so, once again, pace yourself!

... So much heavier than we thought and so much power! Made your arm go wobbly trying to hold it out for her! We had to make her flap her wings and you could really feel the draft underneath.
We then held a Bald Eagle who only weighed in at 20 pounds but the same feeling of strength. He was gorgeous too. Funny but they weren't too interested in us, apparently there eyesight is so long range, things up close (like us) don't bother them. ...

    Memorable and great staff, rooms and pub. You are missing out if you do not stay at the Duke!

    You hope when you travel abroad that your accommodations will be clean, reasonable, enjoyable and friendly. You don't always get all four in one location, but we did with the Duke of Marlborough. When we started planning our second trip to England for 2014, one of the few requirements that we had was that we would return to Oxford and that, without question, we would stay at the Duke of Marlborough. We discovered this gem by accident on the road and were taken in by the pictures of the pub, the rooms and the rate. We were not disappointed. Derek and the staff were incredibly friendly, willing to help us with our trip plans, and made us feel welcome. The food (and drink) was fantastic and the rooms great. I cannot recommend The Duke of Marlborough highly enough; it became our "local" while we were there, and I know that we will be returning whenever we are back in England.
