About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

This rain has been so welcomed! I know our tent campers aren’t as appreciative of it as we are. The bluebirds have been sitting in the birch tree taking “rain showers”. It is funny to watch the birds IN the bird bath/fountain while it is raining. They just scoot all around in there, fluffing their feathers.

Must be the baby crows have found their voices because this morning it sounds like Jurassic Park out there. BOY! They are noisy!

The 4th of July is just around the corner! I can’t believe that June is basically over! Another 5months and we’ll be doing the snowmobile trail reports! At least I HOPE so! The way the weather was again this summer, it makes ya wonder what winter holds in store for us.

In case you are going to be in the Newberry area, the following is some of the festivities that are going on during the July 4th time period:

July 1 & 2MOTOCROSS RACING! AMA Sanctioned. Come watch ATVs, ORV’s, Dirt Bikes race! Races for ages 4 years old and up! Registration begins at 8 a.m., practice at 10 a.m. and races start at noon!

July 2 The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society will hold a dedication on Sunday, July 2, for its new Surfboat House Exhibit, located at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, Whitefish Point, Michigan. This is the original historic building constructed in 1923 by the U.S. Coast Guard for its Surfboat at the Whitefish Point Rescue Station. The exhibit features the story of the U.S. Lifesaving Service and the U.S. Coast Guard along Lake Superior’s Shipwreck Coast; a replica Beach Cart which carried beach rescue equipment; and a replica Beebe-McClellan 26-foot handmade surfboat. Exhibits also include a variety of artifacts and descriptive panels. Funding for the exhibit is supported by Michigan Humanities Council and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
