1996: Wishing You A Most Magical Holiday

Some posts back I wrote about the famous magician, Channing Pollock, who lived with his beautiful , artistic wife, Cori, in a spectacular home overlooking the Pacific in Moss Beach. Christmas, 1996 Cori and Channing sent me (and all their friends and loved ones) a very special “Holiday Greetings” from Moss Beach. Cori has since passed, and Channing has moved away, but I will never forget these creative and spiritual people who touched my life.

The Moss Beach home in the photo above was originally built by Skipper Kent (see earlier post where I go to Hawaii and visit Skipper Kent), who operated a restaurant in San Francisco, and later moved to Hawaii. I believe after Skipper Kent, a California Senator resided there.
