Big Orange.

Big Orange

The Big Orange is back - recently painted and well maintained. I always enjoy looking for the Big Orange when in the vicinity. It's a landmark for the locals when explaining driving directions and fun to point out as a bit of physical trivia to newcomers to look out for.

I recently stooped to get a better look at this favorite local attraction of mine, and noticed that there is also a memorial to the Veterans of Vietnam.

Sort of an Agent Orange/Big Orange connection?

Big Orange

There is a big orange on us 1 north of Melbourne, in old Eau Gallie. It has been there forever, made out of cement painted orange with leaves and everything is real cufy. At one time tourists were served orange juice out of it.
