31 Days of Spook – Devil’s Pool

06 Oct

Squeals!  I have another guest submission today from my Auntie Sharon who lives in Australia.  Oh my friends – this is definitely a scary one.  Will someone hold my hoof please?

An Australian Ghost Story.

Aussies are not known for their timid nature or of being easily scared. When you share your home and garden with flesh eating spiders and snakes that can kill in several minutes one tends to get a bit desensitized to the horror side of life.

However there is a place in Australia that the thought of gives me the creeps. There are signs every where advising people not to swim and even have signs with pictures showing how people could drown if they swim.

Alas some people seem to see the “do not swim” because you will get drowned or eaten as a challenge.

Which brings me to the many mysterious deaths at Devil’s pool. Wouldn’t you think a water hole called Devils Pool with signs everywhere would deter people from swimming there? No! People go there in droves and unfortunately, not every one leaves. There is talk of people drowning there WHO WERE NOT SWIMMING at the time??

This story goes way back to the story of our ancestors before European settlement and it seems Devil’s Pool is haunted by a young native girl called Oolana who lures young men to their death as she tries to find her lost love.

The story may or not be true but the drownings are very true.

Tell me, would you risk it a have a swim on a red hot day in this pool?

    In the Verzasca Valley (where I live) every year some tourist losses his/her life disregarding the many signs “Do not swim: dangerous waters”…
    There isn’t any Oolona wandering around, but I guess people likes the thrill and excitement to do things which are forbidden… What about “every one is just responsible for his own life?”
    Have a real lovely day :-)claudine

      Oh that is true. It’s like the forbidden is something that must be overcome by some and challenged. How awful that people still attempt it. XOXO – Bacon

    Australia…love hearing about it but we’re staying in North America. Poisionous reptiles an vermin are free to fend for themselves in Australia…we will remain bite free in northern Canada.
