Winnipesaukee Lake - USA

And the last card of the week was the beautiful sunrise over the Winnipesaukee Lake in New Hampshire. The card was sent by Dulcey and i love it.

"Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in New Hampshire. The lake contains at least 253 islands, half of which are less than a quarter-acre in size and is indented by several peninsulas, yielding a total shoreline of some 288 miles (463 km).
Lake Winnipesaukee has been a tourist destination for more than a century, especially for residents escaping the summer heat of Boston and New York City. The Native American name Winnipesaukee means either "smile of the Great Spirit" or "beautiful water in a high place." - in: wikipedia
