We did a TOUR of the Great Camp Sagamore with Fantasy Tours England Autumn group, It was one of those empty slate places for us from out West; we had never heard of a Great Camp. We enjoyed our time visiting this place and found it very entertaining!

At a nearby camp, we met a newly-wed older couple, and I taught my son the art of patience as we spent the better part of an hour listening to their drunk tales. Well, maybe I am stretching it a little. I practiced the art of patience, Alex is already pretty laid back. We returned to our camp where I swung in my hammock and enjoyed the quiet. Alex had a pretty good fire going which ...
... on our left. When we pulled up in front of the main lodge and walked up the wide front steps, I felt like I was coming home. We pushed open the front door and I exhaled again. Old pewter, delftware, a slip-covered armchair with proper table and decent lighting near shelves of well-read books sans jackets, even a pair of Dresden figures tucked in just the right spot.
