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.

The children of fishermen laugh like saltwater

Congratulations to one of our Bondi Family, Emily Swinkin for winning in the U of T Alumni Short Story and Poetry Contest.  Along with the honour, Emily won $1000 and a spot in the summer issue of the U of T Magazine for her Poem, The Children of Fishermen.

Emily has been coming to Bondi for a very long time, and we look forward to her family's arrival every summer.  We are always delighted to recognize the creative talents  of our friends and guests, and are happy to take this little moment to showcase her lovely poem.

we have been asked to take down the text of the poem, Nov. 25, since McGraw Hill has purchased the rights to it for one year, to include in a poetry anthology.  Hooray for Emily...
