Astoria and Gunderson's Cannery Cafe

Astoria is an old cannery town near the mouth of the Columbia River. It peaked some time ago. The canneries are mostly closed, but there is a quaint waterfront and some good restaurants. We liked Gunderson's Cannery Cafe which is on a pier by the river. The flank steak salad, a special that day, was excellent, and the shrimp sandwich, with little pink shrimp, was very good. We didn't have much time, or we would have explored more, but what we saw, we liked.
