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.

About a month or so back, big yellow trucks came by and chewed up our pavement.  We joked about how that's what happens when you don't pay the taxes -- they come and take back the road.  They certainly took it back -- lowering it several inches and grinding up the asphalt surface to leave us bumping along over a pretty rough base.

We knew that wouldn't last, and sure enough yesterday the big yellow trucks were back. Lots of flashing lights. Men walking about with marking paint and line tapes. Road sweepers. Small trucks full of supervisors.  And the piece de resistance, the asphalt truck itself. 

It's neat to watch, as it simply pours out a new road. In its wake, a roller scrambles back and forth, putting finishing touches on the surface.

There was a bit of a delay while the trucks waited for the supply vehicles to bring them the asphalt -- it comes from Huntsville and Bracebridge and they hadn't timed it quite to perfection.

Now we have a lovely new bit of paving right to our door. Smooth it is... very smooth!
