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.

Winter is a Carnival

It takes a lot of organization to make a Winter Carnival run, so hats off to Ashley and Shannan for the work they put in.

There was so much on offer for kids and adults alike.  From nail driving contests to the inter-active Science Show, minnow races to displays from the Snowmobile Club, body-bowling on the rink, pancake breakfast and hot lunches provided by the Volunteer Firemen.

 Tim the Puppet Tamer held the kids (both big and little) spellbound. He's seen here with his psychic turtle.

The Body Zorb track was a huge hit. And a huge workout!  The best was when someone found themselves stuck head down, feet sticking up -- but a good shove from a neighbouring 'zorb' would set that right and they'd be off again.

What's a carnival without the excuse to chomp down a syrupy moose tongue?  These are a northern tradition!

 Taffy wasn't the only dog at the Carnival, but we think she was the only one to try out the Snowman  Look-alike!
Dog sled rides are always popular. Across by the rink, the Kitty Kat snowmobiles offered another type of ride for the small set.  There was also a snow-hut building competition, snowman making and a bonfire.    If anyone got cold outside, there was non-stop action going on in the Community Centre, with people flowing from station to station so it never appeared to be crowded but always appeared to be 'steady.'

And there was non-stop Karaoke action.  Kendra and Sydney (my third cousins, if you need to do the Family Tree!) stepped up to the mic.  And those gals could really belt out the tune!

What a lot of fun takes place at these winter carnivals.  Dwight's extends over a few days, starting with a Talent Contest for the kids and wrapping up with a Dance for the adults.
