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.

Red Sky at Night

The sky tonight -- which bodes well for tomorrow. And a reflection in one of the infamous Hubcaps on the barn wall...

Cliff Swallows come to Call

we are a bird watchers haven!
We have a bevy of cliff swallows -- not entirely sure where they are nesting, since they like to burrow into sandy cliffs, but they were lovely, posing on the wires, and zipping about eating mosquitoes.

Blessing of Bluebirds

Bluebirds! they are quite elusive to photograph, but I was able to get some pictures of Mom feeding the nestlings -- the fledglings left the nest today, so I was lucky to get these shots. And then Dad Bluebird was kind enough to stay still long enough for me to get some pictures of HIM as well! A good day, in the bluebird photographing dept.

Robin on the Hunt

Robin is being a very successful hunter!  This is the time of year the babies are out of the nests, and the parents are working overtime to feed them and teach them to hunt.

Sir George, the Order of the Garter (snake)

here's another look at how incredibly beautiful this garter snake is that David found. It was carefully relocated to a safe place, so it can carry on with its 'job'. Snakes are an important part of the eco-system. Garter snakes are harmless, and very beneficial.

Growing Like, well, like little Chickens!

Look how big our tiny baby chicks are getting!

Totally tubular Tuesday

Tuesdays at Bondi are Cook-out night on the beach. It's a tradition that stretches back to the 1950s, and has made incredible memories for so many families.

Hot dogs, fruit and veggies, s'mores (lots of s'mores -- s'more and s'more of 'em in fact!) Potato cannon demo and oh, yes, seed spitting. 

Cheers to Jason Arno, who won with a distance of 35'7!
