In the afternoon we mostly avoided the rain and visited the Horniman Museum. We've been planning to visit for quite a while but somehow never quite got round to it. I enjoyed the Musical Instruments collection and the Centenary Gallery (mainly comprising ethnographic exhibits in a slightly Pitt-Rivers-esque style); the Natural History collection was varied but a little disappointing, perhaps due to ongoing restoration work and lighting difficulties.
We ate at Le Chardon in Dulwich; a rather traditional establishment that hasn't lowered itself to contemporary tastes, so Mrs Q started with oysters and I enjoyed sautéeed calves' livers as my main course. Finally it was off to a party to say farewell to a school friend of mine who is moving across the Atlantic. We've only intermittently been in touch but it was good to see him again, albeit briefly.
