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.

Woodpecker Ambition

Sharon and I took Taffy for a wander last week.  The trails in the woods are drying up nicely, and nobody got lost in the mud where the spring melt has been pouring down off the maple hills.  

You can certainly see how much water was flowing, though, with some interestingly serious erosion around the small (dry in summer) creek beds.   That was thanks to the rainfall that fell into over a foot of snow in the bush in April, causing lake levels to rise precipitously.

We found a wonderful stump covered with artist fungus.

And lots of activity from the pileated woodpeckers.  

Looking at this tree, located not far from one of those recently flooded creekbeds, we had to wonder if the woodpecker knew something we did not -- it certainly looked like he was working on creating a dug-out canoe1
