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!

So far, it has been an uneventful 4th of July at our park, which is just the way we like it. By that, I mean our guests are nice, quiet and respectful (with the exception of a family group that caused some disturbance the other night). Dan and I always dread the 4th of July, just because of fire crackers, fireworks and even sparklers. We don’t allow the use of any of those things in our park and even though it is spelled out plainly in the rules, people don’t read rules. I realize sparklers aren’t that bad…as long as the “sparklee” remembers to take them out of the ground when they fizzle out. A couple more nights to go….

The new, LONGER mower belt arrived! What a difference ¾ of an inch makes! (DON'T GO THERE, FELLAS) Why do companies always try to “improve” on what has worked for many years? I’m still using heat on my shoulder and shoulder blade!

The weather has been perfect in our area for this weekend so far. We had a few showers, but nothing major. It rained HARD west of us and at Whitefish Point on Saturday.

It sounds like the attendance at the St. Ignace car show was a bit of a disappointment, but that also seems to depend on who you talk to. Years ago, our business, Clementz’s Northcountry Campground & Cabins and Newberry motels use to get a lot of people as a result of that show. I’ve been told by locals who attended the show this year that there were still motel rooms both sides of the bridge. I hope there is a good turn out for the upcoming car show in Newberry!
