Geocache Description:

This cache is a large pill container. There is another container in it that has the log to sign. Please don't force it when opening it. BYOP. Please re-hide it very, very good, covering it if you need to, so that no beach-going muggles will be tempted to take it. Use super stealth! There is parking less than 100 feet from the cache.

The final is at N 36 57.ABC W 121 59.DEF
