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.

Meandering with no real Purpose

 Spring has pried loose Winter's lock grip on this little pond near Springside cottage. It is acting as a perfect reflecting pool... not to mention serving as a drinking fountain for the flock of wild turkeys.

Speaking of turkeys -- they left a message in the snow by the hangar.  Taffy wandered along beside it, trying to decipher it, but had to admit defeat... it was just 'chicken scratch' to her.

The turkeys are currently spending their time down in the swamp, where there is excellent cover and plenty of food to be found under the light snow cover.

Out on the lake, the walking (and running) were perfect.  In the distance, that small dot is a deer. At this time of year the wildlife is on the move and it is common to see the deer wandering between the Points of the Bay.

Where did all the colour go? This is our Island, the focus of our Marathon Island Swim every week in the summer. In the late afternoon light, everything went to black and white and all the shades in between.

Over by Chateau, at the far corner of the bay, I found this Sea Serpent basking on the shore...

And right outside my door at the house was this cheeky little chap...

So that was our daily wander...  We are keeping an ear and an eye out for Signs of Spring. We'll keep you posted, here at Bondi Bay!

  1. Thanks for photographing the wandering! Taffy looks quite stoic in that last shot...
