Remember that I said that Sherri sent me an envelope with 4 cards? Besides the Victoria Falls card from Zimbabwe, these are the other 3 cards she also sent. It was very generous of her to send me so many cards. Thank you again. 

US-4463211, sent by Sherri.
It snowed here a few days ago, unfortunately it wasn't enough to ride a snowmobile like these guys are doing in Fairlee, a town in Orange County, Vermont. Fairlee is home to Lake Morey, which claims to have the longest ice skating trail in the United States.

The Windmill Point Light in Vermont is the northernmost lighthouse on Lake Champlain. 
The first lighthouse on this site was privately erected in 1830. In 1858, the Lighthouse Service contracted with the Ellis and O'Neil firm to erect the present octagonal tower, which is connected directly to the keeper's house. It remained in service until 1931. The keeper's house was transferred to the customs service for use in battling smuggling during Prohibition. 
In August 2002 a new solar powered beacon was installed in the old tower. The light is still in service and remains an active aid to navigation. - in: wikipedia
