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.

Language No Barrier

 We had guests here this September from Germany.  They told us, when they arrived, that they hoped to see some wildlife.

Well, our deer delivered...

So did the local wolf pack. A moose in Algonquin... the loons in the bay... we did our best to turn it up for them!

By their second week here, Karin had all our critters under her spell.

This young buck, munching on leaves and apples at the apple tree beside their cottage, enjoyed the apples that were shaken down for his benefit.  There were also a lot of these apples collected and strategically placed on the picnic table in front of the deck, where Karin would sit and chat with the deer.

You can see Karin, right at the cottage door, talking to
the young doe just visible at the corner of the cottage.
The hens soon discovered that she also had tasty treats for them, and we'd find several of them loitering near the cottage door. They seemed more than happy to swap eggs for tasty scraps.

And then we found Taffy, happily ensconsed on the deck, next to Karin. She had discovered German sausage... and was a very very happy poodle indeed.

It seems that language, when we talk to the animals, is no barrier at all!
