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.

Trivia Night and Not so Trivial Artwork

Kathy adding some brush strokes
We had two Bondi Teams at the Library Trivia Night Wednesday. It's the 17th Annual time this event has run. We have never won, but true to form, everybody on the teams knew something... and nobody knew nothing.  We just couldn't remember a few details in the 18 second windows allowed, and we got into a few arguments and missed the moment... But we had a blast, and one of our Bondi Teams, The "Eh" Team, came in a very creditable sixth place out of some 20 tables.  

the 'real' painting.
Also happening was the brush stroke event for the new Group of Seven Mural that will go onto the Library building next year, in honour of Canada's 150th Anniversary (and also in honour of Tom Thompson, who died in 1917...)

This is Winter Sunrise, by Lawren Harris, and it's a lovely painting (and very appropriate for Kathy to add a few splashes of colour!)  .  We are more used to seeing Kathy here at Bondi in the Winter, so this seemed appropriate (she comes every winter to ski our cross country trails)
