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 fella in the "boat" was trying to break the ice in the harbor outside of Paradise. I think he REALLY wants to go fishing!


  1. Such a square little boat!!!
    I can understand how bad he wants his fish...I would love to catch a fresh one myself about now!

  2. Retired One...he was being camera shy. I had the operator in the lens but he moved! The boat was making a LOT of racket trying to crash through the ice, then back up,rev up and full speed ahead trying to break through more ice. He must trust that old boat!
