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.

The Science of Melting Ice

There's still ice out by the island. It's a soft, misty morning, with the sky darker than the ice. Any day now could see the last of the ice. We say that with conviction -- and backed by the scientific evidence of this Ice Out Chart our father Paul compiled over fifty years.
While the ice CAN leave as early as April 1st, well, obviously this year it didn't. It can leave as late as May 9th. Looking at the lake, that's not in the cards this year either.
Standing on the dock before he left for Bermuda, I bet Brian the ice would go on Tuesday, April 21. His engineer's perspective was for today, Monday. So far, I'm winning...
But, given the amount of ice still out by the island, there's room for the rest of you to toss your hat in on this one as well... It's still up for grabs!
