The Devils Puddle, Legend Of The Blue Hole
Blue Hole - New Jersey
New Jersey has probably spawned the most well known cryptozological, paranormal oddity of the century, the Jersey Devil. The Beast, a creature not scientifically proven to exist, has terrorized the population of New Jersey for over 270 years. But in the backwoods , hiding in the remote crevices of the Pine Barrens, there awaits a less well known but equally mysterious legend, the Blue Hole.
Located deep in the Pine Barrens of Winslow Township, NJ, lies a circular, perfectly crystal clear body of water(weird, as all sources of water in the Pine Barrens are tea colored). This small but legendary pool is not only said to be bottomless but a frequent pit stop of the Jersey Devil, his personal portal to Hell, they say. Still as glass, the water looks inviting, especially on a hot summer day. Yet locals warn their children to stay away and whatever they do, don't swim in it. Tales of unexplained whirpools and mysterious drownings have long been part of the pools lore. For those who were lucky enough to get away have claimed they felt an icy hand pulling them down into the chilly depths.
The area around the pool is eerily silent. No animals can be heard and no life, no fish or vegetation, seem to exist at all inside it. The pool always maintains an icy chill, 58 degrees to be exact, depsite the high temps in the summer months. It is said it is bottomless directly in the center and the walls, or outer rim, are made of a fine sand, sometimes referred to as sugar sand, which locals liken to quicksand.
According to unconfirmed reports, several people have drowned or otherwise died in this lake for unknown reasons-there bodies found floating on the top of the water with scratch marks embedded into their legs and ankles. One victim, imparticuliar, was found with a broken neck and a gapping black hole where their eye should have been. Is this the work of the devil or an insane occultist? Who knows but its creepy that's for sure.
Suspecting this lake to be a favorite lurking place of the creature, locals used to set traps for it, and there are photographs of these in existence. As for another mysterious quality, some less reputable sources say that the bottom of the blue hole is a porthole to another realm. Witness have testified throughout the years to seeing an elusive, unknown creature, similar to the physical description of the Jersey Devil, entering and exciting the pool at night. Reports of weird sounds, eerie lights, and ghosts have been reported as well.
Fact or Fiction? I'll let you decide!
