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.

Scenes from the Chowder Bowl -- like Ascot, or the Queen's Plate, only with Clams... 2016

Nora, Vivian, Jamie and Scarlett -- the best hats!

The Muskoka Music Men bring beautiful harmony, and old favourites, like "My Wild Racing Clam'

Brian has the honour of carrying down the Chowder Bowl

The Camerons of Lochiel Pipe band were out in full force, and there is nothing better than hearing pipers across
the lake in the evening. wow.

little and big, riveted by the music...

the clams get registered, get a nailpolish number and go into the muffin tin to be
taken to the start line. Terribly official. There were 51 entries.

David's hat. Read it...

Carol makes sure nobody ever leaves without some refreshments

Pemberley was brave about the pipers... Thistle and Indigo watched from a safer spot

Big and small, everyone has a good time

Indigo decided that there was safety in numbers and went to join the guests

Brian has to wear his fabulous Disney hat. He has to... 

David and Brian placing clams along the start line

and lighting the torches that mark out the course

every year the ducks come to be the official stewards of the course

Pipers, in kilts and sandals and with a backdrop of canoes. Magical. Thanks so very much for coming

listening to the pipes

Leslie comes up with the most creative hats

The official Torch of the Chowder Bowl

David and Sarah with the trophy - 29 years of clam racing.

Piper Brian (in what we really hope is a wig) gets a little listen from Taffy, who'd like to be the band's mascot.
