Hello. We will be travelling in NW Washington and British Columbia during the last two weeks of August. Towards the end of our trip, we will be driving from Vancouver to Anacortes in anticipation of visiting the San Juan Islands area for three days. Because there is no way we will be able to catch an early ferry to the islands that day (and don't want to lose a whole day waiting for one), we're thinking of basing out of LaConner, Anacortes, or Bellingham instead of trying to stay on Orcas Island for our 3-day visit. Any opinions on these options would be appreciated. We've read that this is probably the busiest time of year for the San Juans. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
