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.

12/12/12 and comes the Snow

 12/12/12.  Now there is a date you don't see often. Or should we say, ever?

Nor will we see the calendar line up like this again, so hopefully you have basked in the numbers today.

Here, it snowed.   The bay is beginning to freeze over.  Snow lying on top of the shelly new ice forms interesting patterns that change almost as you study them.

I was particulary taken with the perfect circle formed on the ice by the dock at Beaver cottage.

Someone called today, asking about the state of the ice-fishing... well, you could try fly-casting...   trolling slowly...  but sitting out there -- well, not just yet, folks!  We are hopeful that we'll have a rink for the holidays. We're still on track for that!  With our bay being shallow, it usually does freeze up long before the main Lake of Bays.

With the snow comes the chance to track animals -- both wild and more familiar. I was tracking Taffy back to the house, only to discover she was very enchanted with tracking the squirrel.  Ah, winter in Muskoka... something for everyone.
