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!

is it going to be a dogwood blossom?

is it going to be a dogwood blossom?

We don't know if this is going to be a dogwood blossom or not...do you have any idea?  We don't think that it will blossom before we leave on the 28th.  The tree (bark) reminds us of a dogwood....

We had 3 boaters yesterday with no tag so we left them the info we are required to leave.  Don't know what the outcome was.  By 6:30 this a.m. there were already 10 boats and trailers over there!  And the sun doesn't get above the tree line till around 8!  It'll be a busy weekend!!

If you know what those photos might be, let me know!

    A Dogwood, for sure.

  3. Anonymous (s) The leaves have opened up a lot but the "budlets" are still closed. Maybe it WILL blossom in the next week! I hope you are right!
