I think I would also pick #1 but I need some clear every now and then. I never need sweltering. But, I could go for a drive inland with my A/C on, right?
For me, neither one is "better." However, given my druthers (whatever those are), I'd choose a coastal day any day, regardless of the weather. Are you taking a poll?
You can get a 3-pack of druthers at Costco.
...but what are they?
I must have cool, so the fog is fine. Sweltering days are exactly the time to be at the ocean as you have planned it. Where I currently am, we have sweltering days in the 90s PLUS humidity each day of about 80%. So I have the worst of both worlds. LOL
That's the main reason I fled North Carolina.
1 and 2 depending on where I am. The grass is always greener...
Neither. Being mobile means being in the conditions you prefer, which is neither 1 nor 2. But it almost always means being VERY close to babbling water & greenery.
