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.

A Bondi Thursday in July

Mavis is Captain of the Seven Seas
There is something for everyone at our place.

Thursday morning is our traditional Marathon Swim -- this morning we had three swimmers tackle the swim to the Point and Back (1 km)

And four intrepid ones took on the Island, 1.6 km.  Fred zipped back to the dock in only 21 minutes, but others spent more time enjoying the silence out there in the middle of the lake!

Meanwhile, shoreside, it was a happy happy place!  Here's some photos...
Edith was happy to just "hang around."

Dylan and his Mom Carrie checked out the SUP

while Grandpa Tony checked out the hammock...

Lee got in the swim -- to the Point and Back!

so many people came out with canoes and kayaks to escort the swimmers

Our four Islanders... Chris, Fred, Anne and Shelley. They made it look easy


Chief Swim Spotter, Taffy sets a good example by wearing
her PFD (poodle flotation device). And a charm that blames all
wrong-doing on the cat...  (back at the dock, one of the little
girls insisted on having a life jacket that was the same colour as
Taffy's, so we know she is a good influence. :)

Tony came out to check up on the Swim progress

all aboard the Paddleboat!
and lots of folks were dockside to welcome them back.
Eli's turn in the paddleboat!

And Dave? The whole thing exhausted that boy...  He demonstrates the correct technique for a Canoe Nap.
