Montgomery's uncle, the site has been transformed to reflect what Anne of Green Gables would have experienced in her book. Then it's off to the Fisherman's Wharf Restaurant for a delicious fresh lobster-in-the-shell lunch. This afternoon, meet Bruce McNaughton, owner of PEI Preserves, to gain insights about his life and business.
