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.

They were late arriving in Dwight, our armed forces... that's because the trails to the north were a tad, shall we say, rough.

With some 20 students along for the ride, the armed forces were on manouevres via snowmobile -- or LOSV (light over snow vehicles). It's a four day exercise: from Petawawa to Mattawa to Dwight, back to Mattawa, back to Pet... That's a lot of pounding along the trails. Particularly along trails that would benefit from a good fall of snow.

While the hoped for arrival in Dwight was to have been about 2 p.m., they didn't roll in until close to 7 p.m. And then they spent a lot of time repairing the skis on the snowmobiles, replacing the runner bars, refueling and other running repairs.
Because they were late, and had a lot of repairs to do, the Township opened up the Community Centre for the group, and they were truly grateful to be able to avoid setting up tents in the snow for the night.
