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.

And so to bed

We had visitors.  When I went out with Taffy yesterday, we found several deer beds all snugged in very close to my house (in background, left photo).

This one was right in front of Clover cottage.

In front of my place, there were several, and a large disturbed area where the deer had dug up the snow.

This is what I saw from my window...

And this is looking back at it from near the lake.

And this was right by Clover's door, beside the trail we have leading onto the lake.

Deer dig a bed in the snow, and hunker down. With their thick coats, and hollow-shafted hair, they are so well insulated that snow falling on them will not melt.  They must feel comfortable around us, to nest in so close.

We see them on the lawn almost daily, but we don't always find them having a nap just outside the door!
