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.

Wood Warms you Over and Over

 Spring days are the best time to get logs out of the woods and ready the firewood for next year.  The snow prevents damage to the forest floor, and lets the logs slide more easily.

Dave is in the driver's seat this time. That's the same bulldozer his grandpa Paul used to drive.  The one his Dad, Brian, learned to drive when he was thirteen...    Old machinery seems to be a tradition with us!

Brian was taking a break while waiting for Dave to deliver the next log.

 Mike showed us just how deep the snow is when you get off a packed trail!  Definitely still time for snowshoes.

Taffy was wondering if she should throw him a life-rope...

 It was a glorious day to be out of doors. But then, almost every day is a glorious day to be out of doors!

The Bondi Maintenance Dept. confer on their next move...

While Brian makes the sawdust fly sectioning the logs.  Wood warms you so many times. When it is cut. When it is split. When it is piled. When it is moved. and Finally... when it is burned next winter after it has dried and aged!

  1. That is deep snow indeed!

    Taffy is of course obligated to supervise the proceedings.
