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.

Festive Marten

 David was putting up Christmas lights today, when he had a visit from a pine marten.

Mr. Marten was tracking a red squirrel, and not too pleased that David was mucking about making noises that warned squirrels...   but so it goes.  He can make up for the missed meal by raiding the bird feeder. They are voracious little chaps. It takes energy to keep warm in a Muskoka winter!

These are very attractive members of the weasel family -- active year round.  They have fur on the bottom of their feet for warmth, which gives their tracks a snowshoe effect.

We understand that this marten made a few suggestions to David on the stringing of the lights, which no doubt David took to heart...

Thanks for the pics David!
