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.

Waffling about the Swim

With the BMD (Bondi Maintenance Dept.) back at full strength now that David is done at College, we saw the BBQ Barge come out for the Marathon Swim.

'Tis a thing of rare beauty, paddled with two broken oars, bedecked with two slightly wobbly lawn chairs, and resplendent with one securely fastened bbq and a cooler full of whipped cream, maple syrup and waffles.

It may offer some incentive to the swimmers, given that the recent thunderstorm dropped the lake temperature somewhat.  It's still lovely in there -- we did not get any hail to really put a chill on things.

Our intrepid swimmers took on the Island Swim, as well as the Point Swim. Aaron was our youngest this week, 11 years old, who swam both ways to the big rock at the Point.  Well done!  He most certainly earned his waffle!!

Harry got a big hug from his grand-daughter Jordi when he returned to the dock.

Jamie got out of the lake all shivery, but warmed up fast with a waffle and a sweatshirt.

The pirate flag flew boldly over the lake... and what would be a pirate ship without a resident parrot???

"Ribeye" the parrot kept careful watch over the Bay while the boys whipped up the waffles.
