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 Drive

Tom Thompson titled the painting The Drive. For obvious reasons. It features the loggers running the timber over the Tea Lake Dam in Algonquin Park.

Ron Murdoch, who is recreating the mural on the side of his NorthArt Gallery and Heroes Antique Store in Dwight, more accurately describes it as "The Climb" as he cavorts up and down the ladder with his paints.

This mural is part of the Huntsville/Lake of Bays Mural Festival and Outdoor Gallery taking place from June 26 to July 5, honouring the Group of Seven. This will be the third mural of the Group of Seven in Lake of Bays. The Dorset Heritage Museum has two, unveiled earlier this year, of works by Franz Johnston.

In Huntsville, you can stop by the Community Mural (outside the Town Hall) and add your own brushstroke to the mural Gerry Lantaigne will be creating of J.E.H. MacDonald's The Wild River.

Or you can simply stop by the NorthArt/Heroes Antiques location and cheer Ron on, at the top of his scaffold, armed with pots of paint and brushes.

I'm sure he'd enjoy the company! And you're sure to enjoy the painting!
