Sea Glass

At Seacliffe Beach, near Santa Cruz, CA

I just got some photos in of my (David, editor) granddaughters at Seacliff Beach in Santa Cruz just north of the cement ship, so I'm posting the photo of some of the glass here.

Seacliffe Beach is mostly sandy but with a rock base, but apparently when the currents are right, glass will be exposed.

A lot of the time, however, it seems that the sand is brought in by the currents and covers  up what glass there is.

If you are familiar with Seacliffe Beach, please add your comments below. Thanks!

Seacliff sea glass
by: David

Many beaches, like Seacliff, are covered with sand that is quite deep.

Under the sand is the rocks.

If the along-shore ocean currents change, the sand can wash out from the shore, exposing the rocks and sea glass that has sifted down through the sand to the bottom.

It is almost impossible to predict when those currents will wash the sand out and uncover the rocks.

At very low tides, the water may drop below the edge of the sand, and then your best bet is looking along that edge.

However, low tides many times just reveal more sand; it depends more on the currents.

Where did all the Sea Glass go???
by: JR

I live in Seacliff. I have always read about finding sea glass at low tide and after winter storms.

Well, we just had the "king tides" and nothing??!!

This beach seems to be an anomaly. You can only find sea glass going into the peak of high tides in the pile of rocks washing up with the tide.

Ever since fall and winter there has been nothing. Where have all the rocks gone, and why do they only wash up in spring and summer?? Does anyone have an answer or theory for me?
