D is for Daughters of the Sun #AtoZChallenge




Origin:  Okeefenokee Swamp in southeastern Georgia (USA.)  To be honest, I always thought this was a made up name.  Shows you what I know.

Description:  They live on a mysterious island in the middle of the swamp.  They are smoking hot with pretty faces, dark eyes and musical voices.  Only a few people have ever reported seeing them or hearing their laughter filling the air of the swamp.

Disposition: Unknown.  I have to add that some people entered the swamp in search of these beings and didn’t come back.  Interpret that information as you will.

    1. There was a swamp behind where I grew up. It's was nothing like the ones down south, but it was creepy.

  9. Huh... Interesting. Never knew we had mythical creatures in Georgia. Kind of makes me want down there to see if I can spot them. Definitely going to be doing more research on them though.

    1. Where there are people, there are mythical creatures. I grew up in a small town in Upstate New York that is known for Big Foot. Go figure.
