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

Winter has us in His Sights
Out walking with Taffy, we came face to face with Old Man Winter.
Here he is, looking back at us from the ice along the shore by the cookout beach.
He was playing some tricks.
This photo has not been reversed. You are looking at the reflection of the hill and the sky beneath the edge of the ice.
and this tree is just a reflection of the real thing, in very slightly rippled water. The Bondi Bunch will recognize this as the huge willow in front of my house.
Taffy and I weren't the only ones enjoying a stroll along the shore.
We found the tracks of both otter and raccoon. Not to mention deer.
We also found this fragile ice shelf formed around a tiny stick, and doing its impersonation of a floating leaf.
Finally, here's the sunset, just getting started, from near Farside and Longside cottages. I love the colours in the winter sky.
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.
