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.

A hunting we will go!

Marg is an avid member and former Master of Foxhounds, so the last thing she wants to do is spend her summer without riding. She has a cottage down the road, however, that has been in the family over a hundred years, and where her sister spends most of her time. What to do!?

Well, this year, Marg acquired a new horse to ride to hounds this fall. Roxy was a drop-dead gorgeous chestnut mare, very friendly, easy to get along with, and up for anything. Only problem, she hadn't been worked in while, and was -- as my English hunting friends would say -- well upholstered. So, Roxy needed to work, and Marg needed to ride. Roxy came here to spend the summer with Nancy's horses, a base from which her rider could take her out almost every day to ride the trails in the region. We called it Roxy's Spa Program -- and must confess we did better with Roxy than we've done with Napster the Cat. On the other hand, Roxy went for much longer walks!

They both went home this week. Roxy is slim, trim, and ready for the hunt. And so, even if she's closing in on 70 years young, is Marg!
