Drive from Port Angeles to Port Townsend, take the ferry to Coupeville, then drive north on SR 20 to Anacortes.

You can book the PT - Coupeville ferry in advance, recommended. http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/

I want to stress that reservations for the Port Townsend-Coupeville ferry make a big difference. Make them! I would plan 2 hours from Port Angeles to Port Townsend just to make sure I left enough time with traffic, etc. Plan to arrive 20-30 minutes before the ferry is scheduled to depart.

the route from Coupeville to Anacortes is especially beautiful ... make sure to stop at Deception Pass State Park for some sight-seeing. Stay on SR20 all the way to Anacortes.
