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.

Buffleducks and Mallards

 The mallards look splendid in their autumn plumage.  These handsome lads were enjoying a sail on the bay in the early mist.
They were joined by a small flock of buffleducks -- also known as Hooded Mergansers.

We only get to see these beauties in spring and fall as they pass through on their migration. Which is a shame in some ways, as they are stunningly lovely little birds. Divers, they are rarely on top of the water.

My camera gave up the unequal struggle of trying to zoom in on them through the mist.

But this photo is one of the best we've seen, taken by Ray Hennessy. It captures these gorgeous little chaps -- the gents in their formal wear, and little Mrs. in more muted shades.
