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.

Moving on North

We've been having very April weather this week. Sunny. Very hot. Then cold. Then rain. Huge rain! April showers bringing May flowers, and all that sort of thing.

We've been welcoming back new birds too, on their migration to the breeding grounds. This week, a pair of bufflehead ducks dropped by. The rain didn't seem to bother them. Why would it? These are the smallest sea diving ducks, they spend their winters on the ocean. This time of year, they're moving north, as far as Alaska, to their breeding grounds. They nest in tree cavities, with a preference given to old flicker holes.

We've got plenty of those around here, if the ducks decide to stay south this summer. And here's a picture of a flicker on the front lawn, just to prove it!
