Gillette Castle State Park straddles the towns of East Haddam and Lyme, Connecticut in the United States, sitting high above the Connecticut River. The castle was originally a private residence commissioned and designed by William Gillette, an American actor who is most famous for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes on stage. Gillette lived at this estate from 1919–1937.[2] The estate was purchased by the state of Connecticut in 1943 for a price of $5,000.[3][4]” from wiki#ct#statepark#castle#park#usa#river#boat#nature#water#Gillettecastlestatepark#trees#landscape#landscapephotography#view#beauty#outdoors goodvibes#picoftheday#instagramers#followme#look#instaggood#picoftheday#instacool#style#amazing#instago#photooftheday#outdoors#actor#sherloockholmes#igdaily

I met this gorgeous woman back in high school when I was a lowerclassman and she an upperclassman. I was pretty quiet back then, and I remember watching @jen_nazzaro in homeroom and thinking that she was the kindest, most classically beautiful, outgoing, happiest person at our massive high school. Literally every single time I saw her she was smiling and laughing. I seriously wanted to be just like her. Ten years later, and not much has changed. Jen is still kind, sweet, and the most gorgeous pregnant momma I have ever seen. What an absolute pleasure it was to be able to photograph her maternity photos while I was back visiting family on the east coast!

Whose ready for fall!?🍁

Atop the most southerly hill in a chain known as the Seven Sisters, William Hooker Gillette, noted actor, director, and playwright, built this one hundred and eight-four acre estate, the Seventh Sister. The focal point of his effort was a twenty four room mansion reminiscent of a medieval castle.

The park is one of our favorite spots this fall for taking in the autumn’s crisp air and fall foliage.
