HUGE Wooden Cross Mysteriously Washes Up Near Oceanfront Town in Florida


A mysterious and huge wooden cross has washed up on the ocean shores of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, causing a mini religious revival of sorts in the city known as a party town.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, the town was amazed when a “very large, barnacle-encrusted, wooden cross washed ashore behind the Ocean Manor Beach Resort along Galt Ocean Mile in Fort Lauderdale.”

But while the faithful have been invigorated, it has also piqued the interests of others for its mysterious origin.

“It was 20 foot long, like railroad ties,” Fort Lauderdale resident John Skorupa said. “Really big, really big.”

Skorupa even added that the cross made him reach out to an old acquaintance.

“I called up a girlfriend that I went to church with a few times and I said, ‘Let’s start meeting again for church services,'” Skorupa said. “I brought her flowers.”

“It is fantastic,” Mary Ann Smolinski added. “It’s amazing. Very spiritual. We were just lying on the beach and we saw a crowd of people around and I just got up to see what was going on. It was a cross that was laying right in the water.”

Some have theorized that the cross was blown to sea during the hurricanes in Puerto Rico.

Where ever it is from it is certainly causing a stir in Ft. Lauderdale.
