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.

Into the Swim

After yesterday's rain, it was a chilly morning for the Marathon Swim.

Paul -- just a few days before his 21st birthday -- boldly took the plunge.  Brother Tim and friend Brittany opted to stay on the dock, in sweatshirts, with a cup of coffee...

Margaret and Gunni took on the Island. The trip began in the outboard boat, well bundled against the chill -- but once in the water, which was 24 degrees C, the chill went away. The water was like silk, and they had a marvellous swim. 

From Iceland, they enjoy distance swimming, so it was good fun to have them in our lake for a change!

David and Leigh-Anne opted to skip the swim, and go instead for the Marathon Float.  It's a big lake, we say, to each his own!

Even on a gray morning -- which has turned into a day drenched with sunshine -- the lake was still the very best place to be!
