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!

The seagulls enjoyed the old, abandoned tub
Posted by Picasa


  1. Cathy - these photos are fantastic!! How is the weather up by you right now??

  2. I didn't think they let boats in during the winter when the ice freezes...someone got fined in Marquette for leaving a boat in the marina...
    nice shots!

  3. Shellmo, Thanks!

    It melted a lot out in the open yesterday, but there is still about 3' of snow on the level in shaded parts. Some of the snowmobile trails still have good cover IN the woods, but closer to the road are all muddy. Yesterday was the first nice NON WINDY day we have had in ages. Got all the way up to 45! 35 this a.m. at 5:00

  4. Retired One, this "area" is a small "marina" and pretty old at that. It isn't too far from Whitefish Point (and it is a State harbor). We've been up there in the dead of winter and there are usually these same 2-3 boats there

  5. Love the pictures of the abandoned tub! It is amazing the beauty you can find in old abandoned things. All of the sun in your pictures are making me very jealous; I look out the window this morning and see rain.
