Gillette Castle and the CT River.....a fine end to a fine vacation....perfect weather! Many decades ago I visited this castle and sat on what I thought was a throne. It was actually an ornately carved chair. I imagined I would grow up and be a princess and live happily ever after roaming this castle's grounds.

Well, I don't live there, but it is a marvelous state park and the interior is fabulous. Go here and look around. Over the years my friends, family and visitors have trekked around falling in love with this special place a special actor called home, on a cliff, by the CT River. I love showing them around.

Tomorrow it is back to the every day grind. We had such grandiose ideas about home improvements and things to be accomplished, but the open road called us away instead. We saw so much beauty, nature, and architecture! We dined in some wonderful places. I think our winter will be filled with warm memories of late summer days in New England.

Enjoy your day!

As long as I can remember, I wanted to live in a stone house. These buildings are magnificent.

now back to the old grind.
