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.

Slow Down, and Look Both Ways

This little lady wasn't paying any attention to my car Thursday evening.  Kids are like that -- they get all caught up in the moment and forget about car safety. 
She was more interested in the itch behind her right ear than in the car  It is a good thing to slow down and take your time on the country roads, especially at this time of year, especially in the mornings and evenings when the wildlife is moving around. 
On the opposite side of the road, up in the bushes, was Momma...   Maybe she called to the fawn, maybe the fawn just realized she was too far away... Whatever, she walked out in front of my car without looking both ways.
The deer don't look. They don't understand ballistics, trajectory, the sheer Right of Weight of the car.  Accidents are always tragedies for the deer, and often for the cars as well.
So, when you are up here looking at the autumn colours, slow down, take more time, look both ways along the shoulder of the road, and keep an eye out for the 'kids'. We want to see them grow up too!

  1. Whenever I've been up there I've always tended to drive slower and keep an eye out. Because they can spring up before you realize it. Beautiful shots.
