Blue Lady Ghost at Moss Beach Distillery

Just north of Half Moon Bay, California, on Highway 1, on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is the Moss Beach Distillery, home of the infamous ghost, "The Blue Lady." During Prohibition the building was known as Frank's Place, and was home to an assortment of rumrunners, gamblers and ladies of the night. Apparently one lady who always dressed in blue never left, and is often seen by guests as she roams the halls and rooms.

Ghost in the mirror?

Moss Beach Distillery - Blue Ghost Lady

My friends and I visited this place because we heard it was haunted. The only thing scary were the menu prices. The "Blue Lady" was profiled on "Unsolved Mysteries" in the 90s and now the owners have outfitted the place with "illusions" to entertain the crowds. Bar lamps swing, knocks can be heard, and a mysterious blue face will appear in the bathroom mirror. It would be funny if they didn't take themselves so seriously. Local "paranormal investigators" appear occasionally to talk to the ghosts and it's featured on several ghost hunting web sites, including "Sightings." However, none of these mention that the place is rigged with tricks.
