Dodging the Roadkill: Boars Nest Bed and Breakfast/Blue Boar Restaurant review

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCobden, IL – I spent the weekend in southern Illinois.  I had never been to this part of the country but wanted to attend the annual Blessing of the Bikes at the Bald Knob Cross of Peace.  

I was fortunate to stay at the Boars Nest Bed and Breakfast, and enjoy the Blue Boar restaurant.  Dave Fombelle and his son Bob were tremendous hosts and their facilities were excellent.

The bed and breakfast is located on 100 acres of Illinois countryside, nestled in the woods, where the definition of “peace and quiet” lives.  There are five units including the “honeymoon” suite and they are exceptional.

TWRA reports Whirling Disease Found in Watauga and South Holston Tailwaters

 

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – Whirling disease was recently discovered by biologists during their annual trout population monitoring in the South Holston and Watauga tailwaters. The discovery is the first known occurrence of this disease in Tennessee.

Whirling disease, a condition caused by a non-native microscopic parasite, affects fish in the trout and salmon family, including rainbow, brook, and brown trout. This parasite can cause damage to the fish’s cartilage and skeletal tissue, resulting in deformities in the head and spine.  They may also develop a black tail, or display “whirling” or erratic tail-chasing behavior.
