The Cape Doctor

The Cape Doctor

If you live in Cape Town, you know the "Cape Doctor."This south-easterly wind is a regular visitor during the summer months, and is also responsible for the famous "cloth" over Table Mountain. At times when it really blows it is referred to as the "Black South-easter", and can reach gusts of up to 140 Km/h as demonstrated here on the foreshore.(Photo The Argus)
