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.

Don't Believe Everything You're Told

Brian was cheerfully assured that snow would slide off the big solar panels.

No problem, the vendors said. The pitch is plenty steep for that, the snow will just remove itself.

And we've got some swampland we're interested in selling. Oh, it does slide. Eventually. Thing is, while waiting, the panels are not making hydro. You cannot watch that funky dial spin backwards (always entertaining)

Undaunted, Brian whisked into the BMD Top Secret R&D Labs, and came sweeping out with a broom. Not just any broom. If Harry Potter picked this one to play Quidditch, the entire team could fit comfortably on board, along with a few cheering fans.
A few moments with this beauty, and the solar panels are good to go. Even before the sun is high enough to really drive their fires!
Three cheers for the BMD (Bondi Maintenance Dept.) and a timely reminder not to believe everything you're told by folks who want to sell stuff. Just saying...
