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.

Fawns and Bluebirds, all in One Day

Sue and John are visiting us from England. Today, amidst hail and snow, they headed off to Algonquin Park, hoping to see moose and other Muskoka wildlife.

While they were gone, right by their cottage, this doe came silently out of the woods, with her new baby at her side. Not as big as a moose, but so rare, so precious, on long wobbly legs. Fawns this young, with their camoflaging spots, have no scent. Mom can hide them in the tall grass, and if they stay very still (and they do) you can walk right past them and never know.

She didn't want to pose for me very long -- this is I think the baby's first time out in the greater world -- so the pictures were snapped quickly! I wouldn't have seen her at all, just outside my window, if the phone hadn't run, and I rushed into the living room to pick it up!

What a precious gift! Fawns, and bluebirds... even with a bit of hail and snow thrown into the sunshine, this was a fantastic day!
