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.

Algonquin Park, beautiful in any weather

Monday I drove with a friend up into the Park. Our excuse was to deliver more of our Bondi brochures to the Park Gate, but the real reason was to check out the colour. For those heading north this week, the Park is spectacular.

Yes, it's been raining, off and on, (okay, as Brian points out, more on than off) but on the plus side of that, it makes the colour stand out more on the trees against the darker sky. Just remember to dress well for any outdoor conditions. A little rain should never be a reason to stay indoors!

There were photographs itching to be taken around every turn in the road.

Heading home, towering storm clouds created mountain ranges in the distance, and they, too, were magnificent.

The changeable weather creates another plus as well -- when you finally do come back inside, stripping off the raincoats, shaking out the umbrellas, there is a total luxury in grabbing a cup of tea and curling up by the fireplace, watching the deer who are still outside! There are times when you can't beat a campsite in teh Park Interior. There are other times, however, when the refuge of a cottage smooths out the edges. There is nothing better than a cozy cottage with a view of the lake. And even a bad weather day in Muskoka beats a good weather day in a city. For me anyway!
