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.

Smokey Sunsets

 Distant Fires have brought haze and smoke to much of Ontario.  Depending where you are, the culprit may be a huge fire in Quebec that has already blazed through 400,000 hectares of forest.

Or Michigan...

Or maybe Manitoba.

So let us be glad that we have had rain here, to keep the fire hazard down.  Watching a forest in flames is a sight to strike terrifying awe into the observer. We live now very insulated from the 'Real World' -- and we think that we control the world around us. We are sadly often very wrong about that.  We get reminded that Nature is in the driver's seat when we get tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods... and forest fires.

We are a very long way from where these fires are burning, but our skies remind us that they are out there. If the wind is just right, you can smell the slight tang of woodsmoke.

And every evening, as the sun sets, we get to see the distant fires reflected in the sunsets, which are spectacular because of the haze in the air.

Again, thanks to our Sarah for these pictures, taken tonight.

  1. It does make for such dramatic sunsets, of course.
