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.

Dorset Bridge now Re-Opened!

the work is finished on the hump-back bridge at Dorset, well ahead of the summer rush. This is how Dorset celebrated the opening. ;)

Dorset icon Brad Robinson was the first car across. Of course.  Thanks to the great crew from Willis Kerr for finishing the job well ahead of the summer rush.

Summer detour, for those heading here from the North

just to be aware. The northbound lanes, turning to Hwy 60, are open. But if you're coming from the South, you need to go one interchange farther -- or come off sooner, by Arrowhead Park.
HUNTSVILLE — Construction season is upon us.

Visit from the local wolf

Bird Be Safae

These are the BirdBeSafe collars that the 'kids' are wearing to help keep them from being able to catch birds.
The vivid colours alert the birds better than a bell.  Audobon recommends them, citing that they can reduce bird-kill
by over 80%.  And since that's a big number, and since we love our birds, but also love our cats (although some days we are not sure why with the latter as they dismantle the house) we are 'test driving' these collars.
So far, they have definitely been successful.  And the cats think they look quite 'fashion forward'.


We only get to see the 'boys' in their glory at this time of year.  Later in the summer they will have exchanged these spectacular white feathers for something far less flashy.

Up close

People are very familiar with the autumn colours of the sugar maple trees.  But have you ever taken a closer look at them in spring?  They bloom, with tiny red flowers.  Spectacular in a less showy fashion than the autumn glory, but still extraordinarily lovely.  Because the blossoms are so far up in the tree, it is often hard to get a close look at them.  Luckily, the tree at Sunflower cottage was agreeable to letting me get a close up.
