Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Gillette Castle State Park in East Haddam, Connecticut. Gillette Castle was once the estate of William Gillette, a famous Actor in the early 1900’s. It was later bought by the state of Connecticut. The Park includes a visitor center, museum, hiking trails, and picnic area. There are even live theater events and walking tours available to visitors.
We had a wonderful Adventure to Gillette Castle State Park. I debated posting this as I have blogged about Gillette Castle State Park previously, but the last time was over two years ago. In addition, Gillette Castle State Park is one of my favorites, so I decided why not post!?
I was excited to return for the Fall season, but yet was disappointed that it appeared past peak colors. However I still found the park beautiful! One of my favorite parts of this Park is exploring the trails, which are often quiet, as the main feature is the castle. The trails are just lovely filled with boulders, water views, lovely trees, unique bridges and ponds. We spent about two and a half hours walking and walking, just perfect. It was a beautiful fall day, the sun shining through the trees. Wilma and Gus loved hiking, exploring, and posing for cheese (yes cheese – haha!). It has been a tough week as I have bene sick, but these two keep me going, and kept me smiling. So glad we could Adventure to Gillette Castle State Park today (This blog will not be rated).
