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.

Gardener's Delight

When Sue was visiting last summer, she took some awesome photos -- including some up close and personal with a hummingbird (August Blog, Close Encounters)
Photos don't just get left to languish in computers and photo albums, however. Sometimes they get to go into competitions. Sue is a member of the Mount Albert Garden and Horticultural Society. She's won awards for the gardens at her house, and whenever she's here at Bondi, she and Carol disappear into our gardens to compare notes.
Last Tuesday, she won several prizes for her photos, taken here at Bondi! In the Ahoy There category, she garnered 2nd place for her photo of Graeme Ferguson's beautiful Heather Belle.

One of our Sunflowers helped her scoop up 1st place in the Friendly Giants category.
And, our personal favourite, the hollyhocks by the back door also won her a first place ribbon in the Gardener's Delight category.
Up here in April, she has already set off with the camera in hand to see what other images she can capture!
Congratulations, Sue! These photos are wonderful!

  1. The sunflower photo is gorgeous -- it brings back memories of August at Bondi and is reminiscent of VanGogh's Sunflowers. Wow -- that picture reminds me that summer really is coming.
