Re: Wick?



Fjord is something much more special then a bay, an ordinary bay that
is. A fjord is what they have on Island and in Norway, a bay surrounded
on three sides by huge mountains. It is also very deep and narrow. And
of course there's a lack of word in English for it but I believe that
you usually call it a fjord too.
