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.

Author, Author!

One of our valued Bondi Guests is dropping in at the Dwight Public Library tomorrow, Thursday, at 1.30 to talk about and read from her latest novel.

Dorris Heffron (who, we might add, can spit a mean popcorn kernel at the Seed Spitting contest at the World Famous Bondi Wiener Roast on the beach) will be  discussing her newest novel, CITY WOLVES.

This is an historical fiction, following the first female veterinarian in Canada from Halifax, through Boston to the Gold Rush days at Dawson City as she pursues her passion for the wild wolves, and the Malamute sled dogs descended from them.  A believable cast of characters, a true love of the north country and the brave dogs that made living there possible, interspersed with  Innuit spiritguides  who keep watch over the breed they developed from the wolves makes this a great read. 

 A different perspective on the Yukon gold rush, and the women who have been mostly unsung in history, keeps this high on our summer reading list.  I read it this spring, and it gets two thumbs up from me. It is excellently researched and well written, engaging, and most of all, entertaining.

We are always delighted to highlight the accomplishments of our Bondi family. Join us at the library!
