Portland to Bellingham, WA with a side trip to Victoria

Driving from Portland, OR to Bellingham the end of July. Will leave July 29th and we don't have to be in Bellingham until August 2nd. Would like to take a side trip to Victoria, Canada but very confused on the best route to get there. Should we drive to Anacortes to take a ferry? And, then is there a better way to head over to Bellingham from Victoria?

That is the best option. You should make a reservation otherwise the ferry wait could be very long. Your other option is by way of Port Angeles if you wanted to see a little of Olympic National Park. The ferry ride, however, through the San Juan's is a wonderful boat ride if you have never done so.
