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.

Season's Over, New Season starts

 Fish huts up here have to be off the ice by the end of March.

The BMD (Bondi Maintenance Dept. ) (Brian Mike and Dave) took care of that a few days ago, seizing a lovely mild day for the occasion.

The huts get tucked away in a safe spot, out of the way, where they can be spruced up for the next Ice Fishing season.

There's still almost a metre of ice on the lakes, though.  We're still waiting for those days when you can skate anywhere -- which, given the current melt, might be very soon!

This old photo, from 1979 *(Dec. 27, in fact) shows the kind of ice conditions we haven't seen yet this year.  This is one of our 'Bondi' families -- Henry and Corrie Schogt and their children Phil, Barbara and Elida, coming back from the Island on old-fashioned Dutch long-skates.

We may yet see some ice like this before it all melts!

    That's a whole lot of ice to melt down
