What would make Joseph Smith think that Enoch’s vision occurred by the sea?

Enoch describes the setting of his vision in Moses 6:42:

And it came to pass, as I journeyed from the land of Cainan, by the sea east, I beheld a vision; and lo, the heavens I saw, and the Lord spake with me, and gave me commandment; wherefore, for this cause, to keep the commandment, I speak forth these words.

The “sea east” is surprisingly similar to 1 Enoch 20-36 where Enoch travels “from the west edge of the earth to its east edge.”

What are the odds that Joseph would correctly place the location of Enoch’s vision?
