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.

Record Setting

Brian has been keeping an eye on the thermometer -- someone has to. Can't be our guests because they are far too busy playing in the lake!
He chimed in with the following:

"Yesterday, we set an all time record for the hottest day.  The Past record was 34.5C on July 6, 1988

Thursday,  it reached a little over 36C but this is not an official Environment Canada number of course, just the one that popped up on our temperature gauge.  However you measure it, it was hot.

By way of interest the coldest day in July so far was in 1965 when on July 6 it dropped to 4.4 C. I assume this was the overnight low but still pretty cold.

The most rain in July was in 2000 when on the 31st we got 65.2 mm of rain.

Why do I tell you this? I haven’t got a foggy clue, but enjoy it while it lasts as the fish huts will be going out in about 6 months."

Now, much as we are fond of the fish huts, we are in no hurry to let this stretch of summer leave us.

These are the days when families are spending time together, precious moments happen all day long, the lake is silken and enticing...

Canadian summer, at its very best, at the Lake of Bays.
