    These two sources make no regards to "sides" in the definition of Peninsula.

    Oxford dictionary: "a piece of land almost surrounded by water or projecting out into a body of water."

    Merriam-Webster dictionary: "
    a portion of land nearly surrounded by water and connected with a larger body by an isthmus; also: a piece of land jutting out into the water whether with or without a well-defined isthmus."

    Besides, water is water. Named areas or "bodies" of water do not stop and start due to given names.

    BAH GAWD CAP'M, this run on sentence was crafted for entertainment purposes only !
