Wild Caraway Restaurant & Cafe – Wild Foraging Dinner

It's finally starting to feel like spring and I'm excited to get out for a few Nova Scotia road trips. I like to plan my mini-vacations around amazing food, so Wild Caraway Restaurant & Cafe in Advocate Harbour is an annual visit for me. They host a Wild Foraging Dinner each year and it's truly a unique Maritime dining experience.

Bee by the Ocean

Bee grew up in Digby, Nova Scotia. “Being in a coastal town, you're never too far from a beach or some gruff twinkly-eyed fisherman. I love that no matter where you go there's always someone to give a big, old friendly smile to.” She really has this easy-going, authentic, friendly way about her that instantly puts you at ease. Someone I could happily sit with beside a campfire sharing drinks and funny stories.
