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.

Still Rising

 The water in the lake was a little higher still today.  Brian and Dave continued to work on the docks, to try to ensure that if the ice moves in the docks won't move out.

The barrels add the necessary weight to keep the planking from lifting and the docks from trying to float away, but the barrels themselves offer little barrier to moving ice, which can knock down full grown boathouses.   So the guys were installing planks in such a way that (hopefully) the ice would be split apart and lose some of its power.  That and us dropping by at all hours to poke at it if it gets close.

We might be lucky -- it is getting very black out there, which is the precursor to the ice simply vanishing back into water.  Fingers crossed that there is little ice damage around the lake!  We already know of several boathouses and boat ports that have been knocked askew.

Taffy takes her job as inspector very seriously. 

But it is Achmed's expression that pretty much sums up our feelings about the high water...

the good news is that the river has crested and is starting to go down.
