How Green Is The Sea

A glazed tile on a house wall in the village of Coet-Bugat, France.  The language is Breton (Breizh) and the lettering and design attracted me. I liked it even more when I looked up the words.  It says "How green is the sea".

this is a cool tile, with quite the wave to the sea, too!

It looks a bit like Gaelic to me or am I wrong! Nice tile either way.

I agree this sign is beautifully done. And the words itself is very intriguing "how green is the sea"....when is the sea become green? ^_^Signs

I like to think of the sea as blue; I though it was only green along the east coast of the US :-(

Neat sign!!

I think the words and lettering look Gaelic, too. Whenever I see the sea it looks more green than blue. In the Caribbean it was blue and clear...but then maybe I am color bling. Genie
