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.

Getting that Boomerang BACK!

Grandpa and Uncle Dave hand-crafted the boomerang. So, when it got lodged WAAAAAAY up there in a wild cherry tree where only the pileated woodpeckers go, there was a small panic.

Nora was emphatically NOT going home until Dad rescued her boomerang.

Which lead to James heroically practising his Olympic Javex-bottle-on-a-ski-rope-toss technique until he was able to latch onto the appropriate limb. Much tugging and jostling ensued, with encouragement from Leslie and little Vivian (who were safely watching from the sidelines)

But at last -- SUCCESS! Reluctantly reunited with the family, (evidently even boomerangs just hate to leave the cottage at the end of their vacation) the boomerang was proudly displayed, and then headed off home.

Until next summer. When it may have learned to hide even farther up the tree so it can stay...
