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.

Painting Inspirations

 The flower gardens are looking gorgeous this summer, even if the vegetables would like some steady heat to help them shove up out of the ground faster...

Recently, we have a visit from a local group of artists. They call their group the Palette Packers, and they arrive with not only lunch to make a day of it, but all their easels, paints and equipment.

Setting up in various spots around the resort, they were drawing inspiration from the hollyhocks, delphiniums, hawk sculpture and the lake views.

Of course, as soon as he saw the easels, Napster (our painting cat) hiked over to say a friendly hello.  And Taffy had to carefully inspect all the gear.

Shirley, Gill, Marie and Carol were the artists here that day.  Their work, and that of the rest of the club, will be on display at their Annual Art Show, held August 6th and 7th at the Huntsville Library.

The styles and subjects are as varied as the artists themselves -- although we hope we'll be seeing a few hollyhock and delphiniums represented at this year's show!

As you can see from this sample, their work is lovely. So put this on your calendars!

  1. Napster no doubt would have been popular with the artists!
