We will be coming from Seaside, OR, (after a week's travelling)on #101 then east on #8,___?___, taking the 3:00pm ferry from Bremerton to Seattle (need to be there by 2:15), revisiting Pike Place Market, then returning to our hotel on Internatioanl Blvd. before flying out the next day. We've been in this area a few times before and loved coming down #101 on the Hood Canal, but it was getting dark and we missed out on most of it. With one day to do the above route, is it possible to go back up the Canal on #101, or is it equally scenic and significantly faster to take #106/#3 up the east fork of the Canal to Bremerton? (We weren't planning to do any museum stops.)
Can anyone offer a time difference between the two routes?!
