Waking up in the Morning

If you're not sure, then reach for a cup of coffee. If it's a Tim Horton's then you're probably north of the border.

Speaking of which, while studying the Plattsburgh Campaign of the War of 1812 recently, I stumbled across this tiny US exclave in Lake Champlain.

It's a spit of land about 200 yards long that belongs to the United States, but is disconnected to it by land. Strictly speaking, it's not an exclave because Lake Champlain is a territorial lake divided between the US and Canada.

Panoramio member Guy-Pierre shot several photos of the peninsula and the boundary marker on it. Do you know if it has a name? I can't locate one.
