Artist George Boorujy tossed the wine bottle into the water more than two years ago.

A French couple were walking their dog along the beach in the Aquitaine region in the south of France when they spotted the elusive glass in the sand. Inside, they found a drawing of a bird and a letter congratulating the finders!

This bottle is one of several sent out to sea as part of an environmental project - others were found off the coast of Florida, Virginia and Connecticut.
