Look across the road and find the bayou, then look right and find the pine tree area. Locate the White cross that is in between. Walk to that cross. From the cross, walk left toward the bayou, along the hedge, for 5 steps. Go into the bushes to the multi tree base. Box is in front of the biggest tree, covered with stuff.
