Saratoga Passage questions

More PNW sailing questions... I've been imagining taking my boat on my first cruise in the Puget Sound...

Any recommendations for good anchorages in the Saratoga Passage? Freeland, Penn Cove and Oak Harbor seem to be good options from what I read. But what about Elger Bay, the waters off Lanley, Crescent Harbor?

And for that matter any thoughts about Skagit Bay and Port Susan.

Before I set out for the San Juans I would like to have a bunch of potential places to duck in so I don't get caught out too late or in bad conditions. The previous threads regarding the west side of Whidbey up to Port Townsend were very helpful.

Also, any book recommendations for Puget Sound cruising?

As always, THANKS
