dgauss: Found it in the weeds several feet away from its lodging place. Time to loosen up this nice spot for someone else to place another cache - although farther from the water. If anyone's interested the solution required a projection getting the distance from the speed of sound and the angle from the azimuth at sunset.

Geocache Description:

NOT at the listed location.

The Movie. Saga of a Vietnam War veteran who returns home to an unsympathic welcome; he becomes disillusioned with the war and ultimately becomes a peace activist himself. Academy awards in 1990 for best directing and editing plus six more nominations.

The cache.It was a cool 68°F with low humidity evening on the Fourth of July when we placed this cache. Just as the sun was setting we were at the listed location when we heard the loud bangs of fireworks from the location of the cache. We watched their Independence Day celebration as the sun was setting directly behind them. Whenever we would see a flash, exactly three seconds later we would hear the report. Later, we checked on the cache, but no damage had been done.
