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.

Welcome back

 Ed's family used to come to Bondi all the time, every summer, for up to six weeks at a stretch.  In fact, as the family grew, so did their need for more bedrooms, and our Dad built a cottage just for them -- it is named for their family: Long-side.

That was a while ago. Kids grow up, get jobs, get married, move away... all the usual.

So we were just delighted to welcome Ed home to Bondi this September, after forty four years!

"The trees are bigger," he commented...

He and Claudia spent time exploring and re-exploring the neighbourhood.  We could tell tales about Ed (oh, wait... we did!) and we enjoyed catching up on some of his tales too. (did we mention he could also tell tales about us! Yikes! There was the time he and Brian completely dismantled an old gestetner machine, and put it back together into working order.  A huge smear of gestetner ink on the lawn was the only sign they had been at work. That old machine is still tucked in the basement. I could probably use it for 'back-up' if the computer fails)

His partner Claudia runs a hair salon in Quebec. She had fun in the stable, meeting the horses and working some magic on Squeegee's "do".

She confessed she has never done this before, so we look forward to this being added at the salon.  She called this "fish braid," but here, on the horse show circuit, we call it "french braid."  Go figure...
