Frank Talerico, the owner of the Ocean Manor Resort Hotel, said he considered the cross to be a sign of protection. He thinks it may be a coincidence, or a divine intervention. He said his sister was praying at the property that morning because she was spooked by a bad dream.

She’s like, ‘You know what. It’s not that big a deal. I just had a bad dream and a bad feeling, so I wanted to come here and pray,” he recalled. “And I said, ‘Okay, thanks for doing that.’

Hours later, the cross made its arrival, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

You know what, I’m glad this holy cross is here,” Talerico said. “It’s staying here and if anybody wants to come see it or take a picture with it, they’re more than welcome.

  1. It looks like the huge wooden cross that was on the tip of one of the northern Bahamian islands. Storms may have broken it from the beach and it somehow floated up with the Gulf stream and washed ashore in Florida.
