Usage examples for islet

  1. For instance, a pleasant hour can be spent on the deck of a splendid steamer, as it cleaves its way through a sapphire tropical sea, bound for some lovely West Indian islet; with a good cigar and the dearest companion in the world, watching the dolphins and the flying- fish, and mildly interesting one's self in one's fellow- passengers, the captain, the crew. – Peter Ibbetson by George Du Maurier
