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!

This is what the inside of the little cabin looks like. It is close to our campsite; the first shot (left to right) is me trying to get connected to dial up in the 'living room', the shot under it is the mini kitchen, next is the laundry room and last is the two bathrooms and showers.

Dan helped me connect a very long phone line to the camper so I can now get on line IN the camper instead of hauling everything over to the cabin. Much more convenient.

We just saw a bear run across the field which is across the road from us; it was too far away to get a photo of it, so Dan and I are going for a walk in a bit to see what else we can see!!

On Friday we work at the Pea Island visitor center and Friday night we get to go to a dinner/speaker. The speaker is a renowned photographer; check his work out at www.markbucklerphotography.com.

Saturday we will be transporting people to and from canoe launches. Saturday night we are going on a REFUGE AT NIGHT drive from 5:30 t0 8:30 p.m. Not sure what we are supposed to do Sunday.

Catch ya later!!

  1. Hi! I had quite a time with my blog. Will come and read this post later.

    By the way, please visit my blog. There's a surprise waiting for you!

  2. Wow...what a schedule!!!!
    You must be having a ball.
    I will check out the photographer's website...I would be thrilled to hear their presentation.
    This coming summer, my brother has arranged a trip to Drummond Island for the day with a professional photographer that works for Outdoor Life Magazine to go with us. I will be picking his brain about upgrading my camera, etc...can't WAIT!!! He is going there to take photos of wildflowers for the magazine. Can you see me following him around like a puppy dog and bugging him? My brother warned him and he is still willing to go with me. haaaaa.



  4. Ekanthapadhikan, I will try to get on your blog yet today. I tried a couple days ago but I couldn't get on it. Thanks for keeping up with me!

    Retired One, YOU LUCKY DOG!!!! How cool will that be for you to follow a photographer around!!!
