Chrissy Shahankary was looking for seashells on Padre Island National Sea Shore in Texas with her husband, when they found a sign that said "Dauphin Island Harbor House" covered in seashells and mussels.
That sign traveled 800 miles from Dauphin Island to the coast of Texas! Julie and Billy Lindsey own Dauphin Island Harbor House and they say the sign fell during Hurricane Sally and floated away during Hurricane Zeta.
They say the sign was special to them and they did not expect it to be found months later.
Chrissy found them on Facebook and sent a message.
Billy Lindsay said he thought the sign was gone for good. "You got to remember, it left here, had to leave here and go down Mobile Bay, out of the sound off Bayou la Batre, in the Gulf of Mexico, around the tip of Louisiana, and then St. padre,” he added.
When Chrissy and her husband found the sign on Padre Island, they wanted to take it home but it didn’t fit in their car.
The last time they saw it, a family was cleaning the beach on Padre Island and a man was holding it. Julie, Billy, and Chrissy are all hoping it returns home.
