"Freemantle Doctor" aeolian harp


Fremantle, Australia (AU)
The Fremantle Doctor, 'The Freo Doctor', or simply 'The Doctor', is the Western Australian vernacular term for the cooling afternoon sea breeze which occurs during summer months in south west coastal areas of Western Australia. The sea breeze occurs because of the major temperature difference between the land and sea.

An aeolian harp (wind harp) is a musical instrument that is "played" by the wind. It is named for Aeolus, the ancient Greek god of the wind.
