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.

Warmer in the Water!

 The early morning was chilly (it did warm up during the day, and all the kids were back at the beach!)  but the water was 71 degrees F, 22 C, so very enticing for our guests who came out for the Marathon Swim.

Everyone had a different style for getting OFF the dock and into the water!  From classic dives, to cannonballs, to Tyanne and Isla just sort of 'stepping in'. 

Tyanne was our youngest, and looked really strong on this 1 km. swim!

Katy was probably the fastest... but speed isn't everything -- Brian and Tom spent a leisurely time dog paddling along, chatting and catching up.

We were treated to a 'fly past' from a pair of float planes, too.  Makes a change from being joined by the loon!

Taffy was kept busy -- on the Swim to the Point and Back, it isn't unusual to have swimmers headed in both directions, depending on how fast they are in the water.  There's a lot to keep track of, out there!

Katy, first back on the dock, triumphant!

Brynne and her dad, Tom, congratulating each other

Emily might be little, but she took her job of keeping an eye on Mom and Dad VERY seriously indeed
