Legend surrounds the mysterious 'Blue Hole'
Jim Peck | For NJ Press MediaIt seems for centuries that humans all over the world have been obsessed with cryptids (legendary creatures) like mermaids, the Loch Ness monster, Bigfoot, dragons, werewolves, unicorns, and of course, our own Jersey Devil. I guess there is a fascination with the mysterious, romantic or frightening just beyond our reach .Although I’ve never seen the Jersey Devil, I was driving through the Pinelands years ago at 11 p.m. and saw, on an otherwise clear night, a line of mist lit up by my headlights going from the woods on one side of the road in a straight line across both lanes and into the woods on the other side. The memory of the incident has reminded me now and again of the place called “the Blue Hole”.This is a mysterious pond in Winslow Township thought to be an oft-visited place by the winged monster himself.
