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!

Being a campground and lodging owner has it's ups and it's downs. The ups are the friends we make,guests who are happy to see us. Here is a new down; just when I thought I'd seen it all. Someone took a stick of margarine and smeared it all over a sink in the men's room. THEN tried to stuff it down the drain! How many of you can come up with an answer as to why?? Make it humorous.. I need humor about now. LOL!

    somebody dropped something down the drain and tried to stick their arm down to retrieve it. liked the first one better.

  3. Wilson, THAT is hilarious!! Good one!

    Gary, Yours is good too, but yep, I think Wilson nailed it! I'm going to copy that to my FB page!

    actually it was me that did it, you see, it was my wife's birthday and i wanted to supprize her with a cake, we didn't have a bowl big enough in the tent(or an oven) so i just mixed up the batter in the sink, it was so hot out i was able to bake the cake in one of your garbage cans...sorry for not cleaning up my mess.
    p.s the cake turned out little rough, i guess i should have cleaned the garbage can first

  5. Wil??? YOU are a very imaginative person....I sure hope your wife enjoyed that "cake"!
