Wife and I are thinking of a trip to the great PNW. We get into Seattle on Sept. 5 and need to be back in Seattle for a early flight out on Sept. 11. I am looking for guidance on things to do and if my plan holds water. I've read a number of post that have been helpful. So here is my plan:
Seattle on the 5th - might go to wine country St. Michelle and Columbia. Staying with friends.
Depart Seattle on Ferry to Vancouver Island - thinking of staying at Inn at Laurel Point - spend time downtown...seems lots to do. Or could stay at Fairmont Empress or Magnolia...don't need things to do at the hotel we like to get out.
Next day go to Sydney, don't know where to stay yet. plan to do Butchart gardens then take the ferry Friday Harbor...spend a night there, don't know where yet recommendations are welcome.
Then Friday Harbor to Orcas, no plans there yet.
So is this feasible. I can't find a way to get back to Seattle. Maybe too much in my plans. The only way back to Seattle by ferry was to back track to Sydney then Victoria.
Any and all suggestions are welcome. Love interesting places to eat/drink and paces to see.
If you can help...thank you. If you have questions ask.
