. . . or citrus yellow . . . there was a movie almost half a century ago that intrigued me as a teenager, and the phrase has stuck. But this post is about those tanker that call in the sixth boro with orange juice. Click here to learn more about the Brazilian orange juice industry. It made my morning Tuesday to catch Orange Sun leaving, after nearly a week in Port Newark at a facility I’d love to visit. And I do have something I’m curious about.
Orange Sun came here from Santos, Brasil. Right now it’s speeding to Tampa before –I think–heading back to Brasil. Here‘s a couple months of itinerary. My question . . . why would it stop at a port in our domestic orange state before traveling back to the Brasilian orange state?
Please let me know if you have answers to the question or connections with the Port Newark juice facility.

Here was 9 in this series, mostly taken by my daughter last summer near the mouth of the Amazon. And since the holidays allow me to finally get the narrated version from her, I’m adding a set. She took all of these in Brasil, most in the Amapá state, with a trip over to the Pará state. . Yes, bowsprite . . . there’s a meia here too.
