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!

I could have stood out there all day taking photos of these creatures. Well, STOOD is not the correct word; more like scurry from place to place to keep up with their darting from flower to flower. In the top shot, there are two of the critters (in case ya didn't see both of them). But these are the last ones I will post; kind of like you've seen one you've seen them all!!

It appears I won't get my laptop/notebook whatever we're supposed to call it, till NEXT WEEK!!! And I had given consideration to replacing my business computer with a laptop, but not after this experience! At least the business one doesn't have to be "sent out". It can be fixed in the Soo!
