Blue Lady (ghost)
|Region||Moss Beach Distillery Cafe, Moss Beach, California|
According to legend, during the Prohibition era, a young woman who frequented the restaurant had an affair with a man and kept it from her unsuspecting husband, who later stabbed her to death while walking on the beach below the restaurant with her lover. In other versions of the legend, the woman died in a car accident while on her way to meet her lover. Still other versions claim a second woman who threw herself from the coastal cliffs haunts the restaurant. Reportedly, the Blue Lady is seen or felt by some customers and staff at the restaurant.
The restaurant was featured on Ghost Hunters season 4, episode 11 where the cast reported they found staged effects designed to create a ghostly illusion, such as a hidden speaker, moving lamps, and a mirror image. It was also featured in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries.
