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.

Barb and Peter stopped to chat to Brian, who was just about to head into the bush to cut more firewood. An essential ingredient in that task is the snowmobile, and the big yellow sled it pulls, laden with chainsaws, fuel, tools of various description.

Barb mentioned that she had always wanted to ride a snowmobile, but the opportunity hadn't come up. Quick as a blink, Brian unhooked the sled, and had Barb hop on board. Off they zoomed across the lawn, and for a turn around the bay. You'll notice they aren't wearing helmets -- we strongly encourage helmets for all sorts of sports. In this instance, however, on quite level, open trails, at less than Warp speed, and for a short duration, we looked the other way. (don't try this at home! You only have one head!)
By the time the pair had returned, there had been a little sea change in the order. Barb was in the driver's seat!
If she keeps this up, Pete'll be getting her a helmet and a sled of her own!
Makes a change from pole-walking and snowshoeing!
