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.

Spring Forward

These are springs along the shore in front of Clover cottage.  They keep clear of snow all winter long -- providing a great spot for the deer and birds to come for a drink, but it is at this time of year that they really come into their own, driving the ice away and reaching way out into the lake.

The colours are remarkable, and there is an endless fascination in watching the water bubble up and away.

Spring is starting to make its presence felt. Coming back from Dwight yesterday, I spotted ExcaliBEAVER near the Craft Cabin, happily waddling along one of our ski trails. Now you don't often see a beaver on a ski trail -- he was dragging his tail along, flattening out the ski tracks.  We can live with that... Beavers get tired of their submerged stash of branches this time of year. The bark is getting stale, the taste is getting monotonous, and they will take the opportunity to get out in the sunshine to find something fresh for lunch.

Beav would approve of these springs, keeping the water moving and alive, and cheerily heralding winter's end.
