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.

Fog, Mist, Rain - and you call this February?

 This is not normal February weather. This is a ridiculous thaw, and it is not fun for those of us who love to be outside.  It tests the clothing...

There is an expression that there is no such thing as bad weather, just poor wardrobe choices, and that pretty much sums it up.

Still, rain in February is not ideal.

That said, there are still incredibly beautiful things out there -- like Ragged Falls (thanks Robin Tapley for the photo of that today!)   In the fog and drizzle, it becomes completely magical. (right down to that snow creature in the foreground!)

The bay is all misty -- but the ice huts are still sitting over fourteen inches of ice, so no chance yet that the boys will need to paddle them homeward.

There is still a lot of snow on the ground.  This, coupled with rain, sets up for flooding, but the lake levels are very low, so hopefully the ground water can just move on through.  You can see how far the lake is pulled down -- those long open bits of sand reaching out from the shore would normally be well underwater, and they run all the way to the end of Clover's dock!  So there's room for the lake level to rise.

And it will take some thaw before the snowbank at my back door melts...   It's an impressive pile of snow.

All we need, really, all we need, is for the temps to dip back below freezing for a day, and then bring us a dusting of snow, and all the trails will be open.  And the lake will be skateable too, so don't give up on the March break vacation yet!!!

  1. The falls are amazing!

    We still have a good amount of snow on the ground, and I do expect winter's not quite done yet, but skating is done for the Canal this year.
