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. www.bondi-village-resort.com

If you, like me, are stunned into silence by the discovery that Christmas is NEXT SATURDAY, and your Christmas shopping consists of a few bags of ribbons and wrapping paper, then take heart.
Dwight has some great little places to browse around and find fun, unusual and lovely gifts.
I was in one of them today -- I went in for bird seed... I came out with Christmas presents for the unfeathered members of my family.
Linda has a great selection of items, including some truly gorgeous floral arrangements for the season. (This one is hers, but on display at the Dwight Market -- another great place for last minute shopping, and with the very best meat counter around. Not to mention the pies. Fantastic!Why would anyone cook when they can score out pies like these that just need to be popped in the oven?)
By shopping in the community, we help each other. And isn't that what Christmas is about, really?
Besides, these gifts are unusual, attractive, useful... there's mugs featuring a map of Lake of Bays, local history books, lovely flowers, funky tree ornaments, and a sign that reads "A woman who is looking for a husband never had one" -- now, that should make someone smile!
Oh, and yes, she's got lots of seed for the birds, too! At least I remembered to buy what I went in to get in the first place! Usually I get distracted by all the other fantastic stuff, and come out with something totally different from the Plan!
We'd love to hear from you. The experiences our guests have are precious to us. If you have photos you took at Bondi, we'd love to have those as well. You can email them to Nancy at email@example.com

We are very proud of Napster, our tail-painting cat, who uses his lovely artwork to raise money for charities. This lovely little creature passed away July 2015, but left a huge legacy, having raised over $12,000 for various charities through the sale of his artwork. That artwork, through prints and notecards, is still available. Click here to visit Napster's Blog and visit the gallery of his tail-paintings.
Now sold around the world, he was honoured to have his artwork sold around the globe -- he even has a print with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
