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.

They're Off!

It's the Celebrated annual Clam Race for the Chowder Bowl!

46 Clams went to the Post -- the start line marked out with burning citronella candles and a line drawn in the sand, about knee deep.  That's the approved and technical start designed by our resident Clamologist Brian.

In this photo, some of the crowd gathers on the dock to watch the clams jostle for starting position...

They will run overnight, and we'll be back at 8.30 Thursday morning to determine the winners...

Then it's off to the Marathon Swim... and the Regatta -- which was delayed due to some rain Wednesday morning. It's going to be a busy day.

The highlight, however, will have to be the medallists in the Chowder Bowl.  How can it miss?  With Clamboys & Aliens squaring off against Lord Voldemollusk; with Clambustion challenging Peanut Butter & Clam; Clamerican Debt and Clamtankerous ready to duke it out on the lake floor...  it's got to be spectacular!

Don't touch that channel... we'll be right back.
