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.

Skating, Everyone, Everywhere

 Felix made a bee-line for the raft, frozen into the lake, with the waterslide.  The water, being harder than usual, requires that James be right there to catch him, but that was just fine with Felix.

 went on a bit of a mission today to find skates for some of our visiting guests. It's hard to do, actually. We were blessed to have someone very kindly ride to the rescue with a large box of little skates.  (Taffy was on hand to ensure the correct fit!)  Thank you so very much, Sharon, for helping out with these.  These kids are here from San Francisco -- we think we may have converted them to Canadian winter because of those skates!

James borrowed from one of our other guests (we are still seeking out some adult size skates)

Heidi was only trying this sport out for the second time in her life.  She soon was zipping about, outdistancing her mom.

Before we knew it, she could not only go forward, but she was mastering the backward 'push', too!

The bay was covered with skaters today. It was a lovely sight. The pick-up game went on all day, even after the light had failed.

We are not sure that Esme is using regulation 'gear' when she is playing in goal, but she's effective!  Heidi, here from London, England, asked if only boys played hockey, and was delighted to learn that the Canadian Women's Hockey Team is virtually undefeated. Over here, we tell the boys to 'play like a girl.' (that made her day!)

It isn't all about hockey, however. There was a lot of 'just skating' taking place. The feeling of freedom to be out on the bay, not cooped up in an arena, brings with it wings.  Sam and Mark were happy to simply be out there, flying...
