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!

such a little blossom, but such a beauty

flowering pear trees

You may recall there were photos a week or so ago of buds about to bloom.  This is the end result of those little buds.
I am a flowering pear tree.  I produce no pears, but just pretty to look at!

This is the entrance to the (closed) park where we are staying near Acworth on Lake Allatoona.


  1. Oh how beautiful! Sure beats the white out of snow!
    'hugs from afar'

  2. Cher you BET it beats the white out of snow! I hope it is gone by the time we return!
