Rt. 1 eating

Had Mon. off which eventually turned nice. Met a friend at the Barnes & Noble plaza in Saugus and took Rt. 1 to Salisbury where we hit Pat's Diner for a piece of French toast and short stack of blueberry pancakes. Decent, good price ($4.50 for both), nice people. Stopped at Perk's past the Kittery outlets for a donut (had seen them advertised for donuts on some seacoast web site). Had to get sour cream (the best thing at the Grand Union in Spfld, VT before they changed to Shaw's). Another very nice person who couldn't quite understand my quirkiness about iced coffee. Went to the Nubble lighthouse in York and split a lobster roll w/ fries and cole slaw from the Lighthouse restaurant for $13.95. Could have gotten better deals at York Beach but you pay for the view. Sweet bartender who filled us in on the giant mansion on the cliff (they've got 12 servants!). Above average fries, okay slaw, good grilled roll, decent amount of lobster meat, too much mayo. Down to the boardwalk at York Beach and Wicked Good Ice Cream. Should be All Right Ice Cream cuz it's not made there but I felt bad about walking out to go to a homemade place. The grapenut ice cream was okay at $1.40 for a kid's size. After putzing around then miniature golf back down Rt. 1, we hit Bob's Clam Shack in the midst of the outlets. Decided on an oyster basket instead of clams cuz it's a better deal. Average fries, good oysters and tartar sauce but could have had a few more ($10.50). Saw Lillian who's been sitting in that window for 30 or 40 years I guess. Last stop was Nana Mal's Hot Dogs in Hampton (I think), a very cute little place where we split a long grilled dog on a nice grilled bun for $1.50. Other spots on the ride looked like good possibilities. So many places, so little time.
