Estuaries called islands
This article says:
:Note that there are other places on the Bay with island in their title. These are actually estuaries: Brewer Island, Knight Island, Little Island, Russ Island, Skaggs Island, Tubbs Island
This intrigues me, especially as all the 'estuaries-called-islands' are red-links. I understand how peninsulars and other bits of land get called islands when they are not. But to call an estuary (ie. a piece of water) an island seems positively contrarian. And to do it 6 times in a relatively small area is wierd.
Can anybody supply an explanation?.
In the meantime I'm sufficiently suspicious of this to request a citation. -- Chris j wood 15:26, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
