Sand levels

by Stephanie
(San Francisco)

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I always check tide levels and only go when the levels are 3 ft or lower. Some days I find a lot and other days nothing but sand. Do the currents (ebb, slack) influence the level of sand and thus the exposure of sea glass? Does sea glass wash in and out with the tides or does it get buried in the sand. Want to make my trips to the beach as productive as possible.
