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.

After the Storm

This has been the summer for rainshowers -- hot sun, and then a sudden storm blowing through. Last night we got over an inch of rain. Then, this afternoon, another big thunderstorm came through. My dad, Paul, had a saying about rain:
"hard rain short; soft rain long" It certainly seems to apply -- these hard thunderstorm rainfalls never last very long!

When it cleared, everyone headed back outside. Some, like Jamie and Nora, headed back to the lake, to enjoy some time on the water trampoline, spreading ripples out across the still surface of the lake.

Nancy took some of the kids with her on a short Nature walk. We saw holes made by pileated woodpeckers, Indian pipe fungus, raspberries, ferns, deer, ducks, and a beech tree that had been climbed by bear cubs, all the way to the top! Eamon and Harriet could fit their fingers into the cub's claw marks -- but they couldn't climb the tree!
