bay and penninsula

What is the difference between a bay and a penninsula?


A bay is a body of water -- smaller than a sea or ocean or gulf -- that is not completely surrounded by land. San Francisco Bay is one good example.

A peninsula is a land formation that is surrounded on all but one side by water. Florida is an excellent example.
