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!

  1. I love the photo with the big stare down!!!!
    Great commentary you do with the photos..LMAO!!

  2. Retired One, they are so funny to watch! Last year, I had a baby swallow, just fresh from the nest I guess, light on my head. I KNEW I had something on my head but figured it was a HUGE bug so I swatted it...and it was a startled baby swallow! Blue birds have arrived too!

  3. Swallows are expected to arrive any day. They take up residence in our barns and are very fun to watch. They make these kamikaze dives at my cats and me as I enter my barn which happens to hold their nests. I like them though. They make a dent in the mosquito population.

  4. DVM's Wife...YES!!! They are great bug control! In fact, when AAA inspects our park, one of the questions is "Do you have bug control". I always tell them about all the bird houses and the types of birds we have...that seems to suffice!
