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.

Of wind and tides

The big thunderstorm that blew threw this week brought with it plenty of wind. In fact, a lot of folks found themselves without hydro for quite some time.

While we never lost power, we did lose trees. These two, just in front of CEDARS cottage, lost their grip on the soil with the waves pounding in on their roots and the wind shoving hard on their branches. While they are only tilted at present, it is virtually impossible to right trees when this happens, and the next storm will take them down.

David and Achmed discovered that you could stand on the base of the tree (well, in Achmed's case, you could cling to the trunk) and ride the wind up and down as the trees swayed in the big gusts of wind.


  1. I can't get over how high the lake is. And those trees . . . the wind must have been really ferocious. Feel sorry to see that they will no longer be part of the view from our beloved Cedars.

  2. We lost several over by Beaver cottage last spring. It's sad, once they get pushed over, you can't push them back up! We'll plant something else there, though... a little farther from the water's edge!
