Article Digest:
Generally, a body of water is considered a sound if it is a relatively narrow body connected to the ocean that runs parallel to the coastline. A bay is any body of water that is offset from a larger body of water. As a rule, bays are more protected than sounds which have larger openings to the ocean. Also, a large lake can have a bay, while it cannot have a sound. In fact, a sound can have small bays in it.

Oops! When I glanced at the title of this topic, I thought you meant, "bay" as in a baying hound! The thought of the difference between a "baying" and a regular sound intrigued me to see what you had to say... Smile

Sorry, I've been spending a lot of hours at work since the manager is on a 6-week vacation, and I am the "acting" manager in the interim. So, not only am I doing my usual work, but hers as well. This, yet again, reinforces my lack of interest in moving up the corporate ladder. Smile
