A 'Holy' Cross Strangely Appeared On A Florida Beach And Tourists Think It's A Divine Sign (PHOTOS)

Most days in Florida are considered a beach day. But what if you go to the beach today and find a massive wooden cross? Yesterday, tourists were astonished when they saw a holy cross near Fort Lauderdale's beach shore. 

The holy cross was found near the Ocean Manor Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale. Many early beachgoers were in disbelief when they saw the cross. The cross seemed to be in the ocean for a long period of time due to the sea life encrusted on the wood. 

According to 7 News Miami, the owner of the hotel believes is a sign of protection after he saw the cross. He said his sister had been praying that morning after she had a bad dream.
