The subject of this post was in fact made near to the beginning of my stay in Canada but has had to remain a secret on account of being a birthday present for my best friend, who I know reads my blog (cos she's awesome). But now her birthday has come and gone, the secret is out, and I can show the world!

However it did only rain during the day once in 6 days so it was by no means terrible the rest of the time.
