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.

Arctic Chicken

 Arctic Chicken boldly goes where no smart hen would ever go. 

Every morning, even at 30 below, she elbows (wings?) her way out of the warm stable where the other hens are happily nibbling under the heat lamp and snowshoes her way to the Summer Coop. 

Where, we point out, there is no food. No water. No heat.  There she hops into her summer nest, and carefully produces one perfect egg.

Then she spends the rest of the day in the door of the coop, sadly eyeing the snow she has just waded through, and refusing to return.   When we scoop her up to rescue her (and the perfect egg) she is shivering.  

Brains like this might well explain why dinosaurs became extinct.

I am, however, contemplating stitching her a very tiny harness, and providing her with a very tiny sled for her arctic expeditions.  That, or a teensy pair of snowshoes...
