Fjord surrouned by mountains

What’s the difference between a fjord and an inlet? Have your kids started asking an incessant line of questions? As awesome as it is to be the perceived holder of all the wisdom in the world, there comes a point when you run out of real answers and start making stuff up. Or maybe it’s the other way around. You run out of made-up answers and have to start coming up with true ones.

Well, here’s a handy guide for one topic that’s sure to come up during your family adventures: why the heck are there so many different names for bodies of water and what do they mean?

In less than 6 minutes, you’ll become a master of the art of defining bodies of water. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll become completely confused by minute 1:41 where we learn the difference between a lagoon and a barachois. Either way, enjoy!
