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.

Checking out the Iris

Mrs. Tree Swallow spent part of this very hot sunny afternoon peeking out of her nest box, watching Carol's iris bloom.

Who could blame her? The colours are wonderful!

We think the swallows are pretty wonderful, too. Between our extensive collection of these fantastic flyers, the dragonfly airforce now out at full strength, and the breeze off the lake, flies are not an issue.

In fact, Carol spent almost the entire afternoon working in the garden, while Nancy and Dave tried to cut down the 'hay field' where the grass kind of got away from us around the replanted Century Apple Tree. Which is doing very well, thanks for asking. Plenty of leaves now!

David's comment on that was "it would be easier to hack through the Amazon rainforest with a salted cod." Nonetheless, we got the grass down to something more manageable, for which I'm sure the tree says thanks!
