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.

Water almost Everywhere

Lake levels are rising fast.  With the recent increase in temperature, and the rain we had last week, the snow has melted, the ice is gone from the lakes, and all that translates into increased amounts of water in the lake.

All of which is fine... unless we get a storm, and high winds. Then the water will pound at the docks, lifting the wooden planks and causing a lot of damage. 
To help hold the docks down, the fastest way we've found is to put these big barrels out, then bail them full of water to give them weight. When the water recedes, it is easy to tip them over to get them back to something more manageable when we are ready to remove them.

Today, the ducks were able to actually paddle right across the dock. Hopefully this is as high as it gets!
