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.

Final Marathon Swim of the Season

John and Margaret were the only ones brave enough to
tackle the mile swim from the Island.

 The final Thursday of the summer -- we were on the dock for our weekly Marathon Swim, and what a great turnout of people.

The day could not have been better for this -- the water was like a mirror, the water was 24 degrees...

Where better to be than in the swim?

Sam and Leslie, with SUP and kayak, keeping watch on the swimmers.

Owen set a blistering pace to the Point and Back!

Katy and Christina were first back, but only beat Owen by a smidge!

Great smile from Brynne!

so many of our guests come out to accompany the swimmers!

Daughter Jamie and Mother Linda -- the family that swims together!

Linda, Brynne, Tom and Jamie celebrating on the dock

Augustine was the youngest swimmer, coming back from the Point, 500 m.

Mark lead the cheering squad for the Island swimmers!

That's Margaret, setting a great pace from the Island!

Uli -- have canoe, will paddle...

My favourite photo -- all lined up, pedal boat, swimmer, SUP, canoe and kayak. Perfect.

David has escorted every swim this summer. What a great guy!

John, almost back at the dock

Megan -- she hasn't missed a swim, either.  Thanks for a summer full
of keeping swimmers' safe!

Brian, in the middle of the bay. There is an old sunken log out there, that only he seems able to find!
