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.

Sarah goes a-Hunting

Sarah got a new camera this summer, and she's snapping up a storm of photographs!

This week, she went hunting -- with her camera... and she managed to catch a lot of wildlife!

We love this photo of Mama Duck and her two ducklings, fanning the water and having a little wing stretch.

We are also very impressed by the beauty of the milkweed flowers, when seen in close up, and as always, the glorious Monarch Butterflies are one of our favourite subjects.

In the garden, it's a hive of activity...  blessedly we seem to have no shortage of bees here this summer, since they are critical to our ecology!  Sarah managed to catch this one busily gathering Sunflower pollen for honey in the hive.  We like the way she got in so close for the photo, and the unusual angle.

And of course, what's not to like, when you are walking in the field, hoping to find a monarch on the milkweed, and you find this little beauty hiding behind a frond?

Our guests often tell us that they see more wildlife -- big and small - here than they do in Algonquin during the summer, not because we have more (the Park is the hands down winner in that department!) but because our trails and fields are so uncrowded.

Thanks for sharing your pictures Sarah.
