If you have ever gone to the beach, you know that there are many surprises to be found with every visit. Whether it is seeing dolphins pop up for a visit or finding the perfect sea shell to take home with you, a trip to the beach is always an adventure.

On this particular day, a man had gone to the beach to do some exploring. Knowing that there was plenty of interesting things in the tide pools near by, the man set off in search of an amazing discovery. Once he reached the shallow tide pools, however, he saw something that made him stop in his tracks. A small octopus had washed up on the beach. The octopus was obviously stuck and could not move an inch. The man acted quickly and scooped up the octopus in a plastic cup. He placed the octopus back in the water and waited.

After a few moments, the octopus showed signs of life and started moving again. Once the man was sure that the creature was going to be ok he started to back away. To his surprise, the octopus, instead of heading for the ocean right away, followed him. The man stopped and the octopus came up and laid it's tentacles on the man's boot as if to say thank you. The man stood there in awe as the octopus swam away. He would never forget the day that he received the most unique thank you of his life. Watch the video below to see the special experience.
