Bradley Wiggins at Hever Castle

image

I spotted Bradley Wiggins at Hever Castle (as one does):

Bradley Marc Wiggins, CBE (born 28 April 1980) is a British professional track and road racing cyclist.
....
Wiggins began his career on the track, but has made the transition to road cycling, becoming one of the few cyclists to gain success in both forms of professional cycling. He won the 2012 Tour de France becoming the first British winner in its history.

Among his many accomplishments, Wiggins holds two unique achievements: he is the only cyclist to have won the Tour de France and an Olympic gold medal in the same
year and the only person to have won a Grand Tour and a gold medal in Olympic track cycling. Wiggins has won seven Olympic medals, including four gold, the joint most of any British Olympian and the third most gold medals by a British Olympian, behind Chris Hoy and Steve Redgrave.

Of course, regarding his Olympic medal haul, there are multiple cycling events at the Olympics (5 each for men and women in 2012) and so (like swimmers, rowers and runners) cyclists have a greater opportunity to win multiple Olympic medals than say field hockey players or footballers.

Moss on the roof

image

Fortunately this is not my house, although I do also get a lot of moss growing on my roof and when it rains it washes down into the gutters and drains.

The Front of Hever Castle

image

I adjusted the perspective of this photograph but unfortunately created some other distortions….

Hever Castle

image

The couple approach the castle over the lawns that run up to the gatehouse.  I forget now if my party were walking down to the castle or back up to the gates when I took this photograph.

Reflections in the Water

image

There aren’t many reflected clouds in this photograph, but it’s the companion of the photograph that I posted yesterday: the other side of the castle moat.
