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.

Muskoka Awards...

The Muskoka Magazine hosted a fabulous evening on Friday, at the J.W. Marriott Red Leaves Hotel, The Rosseau to celebrate The Muskoka Awards, celebrating  those who have made outstanding contributions to the well-being of Muskoka and the lives of those who live here, permanently and seasonally

I got to attend -- cheering for Jacquie, nominated for the outstanding work she does with the Andrew Daniels Fish Stewardship Program helping to rehabilitate fish habitat on the Lake of Bays. 

We all got to cheer Al Sinclair, for the incredible amount of years he has put into the Muskoka Field Naturalists; and long time friend Ruth Newell, for being Ruth, for saying that when you see something that needs to be done, you just step up and do it.

There was a wonderful slate of nominees, all more than deserving. The hotel did a terrific job with the dinner.

But the icing on the cake was the MC for the evening, Marc Jordan.  Now, if you've never had the chance to see him perform, I'm telling you that you should be adding him to your Life List.  A long time cottager on the Lake of Bays, and husband to singer Amy Skye, Marc made the evening sparkle.  From his humourous introduction, through the all-too-short-set of some of his songs to his comments during the awards, he was a delight.

He made a remark about autographs -- that he will sign anything...   Then he clarified that he doesn't sign chicken. Perhaps alluding to the dinner menu...

But if he ever changes that policy, we've got several fine laying hens over here that would really look good with his name scrawled across their wings.  And we'd be more than happy to welcome him to Bondi.  Thanks for the evening, and special thanks to Marc for making it truly memorable.
