Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Short a few reindeer? We'll fill in...

 Always happy to get into the spirit of the holidays, Jay Jay and Squeegee came out to day to show their support for Santa.

And Squeegee, who has experience with sleighs, has generously offered to help out if any of the reindeer are feeling a bit 'under the weather'.

Ongoing Research

There is an old expression, "as mad as a wet hen."  

Just how mad IS that, we wondered...

Research continues...

It's the Little Things

Beauty in the First Touch of Snow

Maybe we should think about flying south...

Looks a bit too cold to swim to the Point today!

Some call it a weed, some a wildflower, some a work of art...

Christmas lights really need the snow to make them sparkle

Winter Ready

You are not 'winter ready' until you are 'SQUIRREL WINTER READY.'

Check out the stash of pinecones that our industrious squirrel has carefully gathered together at the foot of the pine tree...

He then carefully carries them farther away, under the edge of the spruce hedge, where the snow never gathers.

And there, pretty far back underneath the protective spruce branches, he has built a enormous "pantry"

Sun and Cloud

Nothing quite like snow clouds to produce drama in the light!   The sun came slanting in to highlight Fire Island yesterday.

These aren't taken from Bondi, so don't try to figure out the angle. I was a at a friend's place down Port Cunnington, looking back toward Lumina Resort.

This shot IS taken from Bondi -- so you'll recognize it!

Getting our ducks in a row

Take note that on November 17th, in the early evening, however briefly we had all our ducks in a row!
