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.

Winter Ready

The first big storm of the season came rolling in -- and Nancy got to drive through it. We're always surprised when we hear the media advising drivers to 'drive according to conditions' -- you'd think that would be a no-brainer, but apparently not. As one wag points out, for every mile of road, there's two miles of ditch, and lots of folks feel compelled to tour them.
The thing about winter driving -- it is winter driving. You need snow tires, not all season... because it is just NOT all seasons. It's winter. It happens every year, right about this time, so it should not be a huge surprise for anyone when the snow starts to fall. The other thing about winter driving is that momentum is both your friend and your enemy... you need more space around you. Visibility may not be so hot in the cold. Getting there late is better than waiting in the ditch for CAA... Four wheel drive means you slide more gracefully into the ditch, with all four wheels. It may help get you back out, but it won't necessarily avoid you being there, unless you (newsflash!) drive according to the conditions!

We're winter ready. Brian's got the parking lots and driveways plowed (and he'll be at that again. And again. And again.)

Teddy's been playing in the snow, dreaming of getting out his cross country skis. All the horses are clean.

And posts here may be limited for the next few days -- there's something very wrong with Nancy's wireless connection just now... but we're working on that. And it has nothing to do with the snow!
