There were lots of rain clouds about today. I only had to put my jacket on twice. I had a wonderful tailwind so it only took 2 hours to get to Leeman.

Leeman is a small town. The roadhouse was open. The fish and chip shop and supermarket were closed.

It was sunny when I arrived and made camp. Then the wind increased and it became dark and then it rained lots and lots all afternoon. 

I took this before all of the rain. $35.
