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.

Another great Swim

Lee eased her way into the lake for the Marathon Swim.  Hugh was one of the SUPs in 'support'... although our money was on Andrea in the kayak to be the assist boat if needed!
3,2,1, GO!  And Claire Did!

Eamon didn't bother to dive, he just Got Wet

Taffy was ridiculously excited that people were jumping off 'her' dock, and couldn't wait for Brian to join them!  "Go on!" she seems to shout.

That's the Way!!! Brian Slattery shows classic form. So does the dog...

en route to the Island, Taffy snuggled up with Lizzie. it was a chilly morning.

Chris is no stranger to distance swims... IRONMAN 70.3 UK... he tells us he's coming back to compete in the Muskoka 70.3, probably next year. We've got him all trained up...

Island Time! Chris, Lizzie and Mike are ready for the long haul home, 1.6 k. back to the dock...

Taffy had a spa day last Tuesday, so she looked most 'glam' for her part in the support boat team.  Annabelle told her yesterday that she is the most beautiful dog in the whole world.  If Annabelle, who is six, says it, it MUST be true.

A lovely moment of Synchro Swimming from husband and wife team of Lizzie and Chris

It takes a team! We had a wonderful cohort of support boats out there. Patrick and Sharon were providing the muscle power... Jean was the 'eyes' watching the swimmers. Teamwork!

David and John had a passel of kids in the canoe to watch Chris and Lizzie

Erika not only helped with the swim, she used the time to practice for the canoe races at the Regatta later in the day, with dad Chris ensconsed in the stern, and Lizzie alongside.

sweet victory! Back at the dock!
