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.

Icebreaker! More Ice Watching Updates!

This morning, the ice was starting to shift into pancakes, little icebergs that the wind was drifting into the northern corner of the bay.
Once the ice starts to break up that way, the wind can get at the water beneath, and all of a sudden, there are ripples, small waves, movement on a lake that has been held still since freeze-up.

This afternoon, Holly came along the shore with me, checking out some of the ice pushed up on the sand.

And Brian just could not resist getting out the boat, and pretending to be an icebreaker, pushing through the fragile ice. He did comment that it was "cold out there!" It's still not weather for canoes!!
But, oh, it will be... it will be...

And for folks like Vic, who has his fishing boat loaded on the trailer, dreaming of getting his line back into the water, well... open water has arrived.
