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.

Tornado Alley

On August 9th, a tornado touched down in the northern part of the Lake of Bays, up towards Limberlost.  It sliced along parallel to the Limberlost Road, smacked East Walker Lake and Fieldale Road, and really trashed the forest adjacent to Carl Fisher Dr.

across Mansell point and into Rebecca Lake
and onward
But the worst of it struck across Mansell Lane, a private road leading to some lovely cottages that used to be surrounded by mature forest.  The power of Nature is stunning.  It was fortunate that there were no serious injuries, and remarkably little damage to buildings.  But the trees...

At Bondi, we were well away from the strike zone, but we had high winds, which took down trees -- Brian has been busy cutting some off the hiking/ski trails already.    And part of our corn was knocked down by the hail -- only part of it, oddly. Brian and David shored it back up, with stakes and ropes, and you'd never know looking at it now that it was impacted.

Along the private road, Mansell Lane, probably the worst impacted
