We think where we live is pretty special. Mountains with snow on them year round (Mount Baker is about 9000 feet high and 60 miles or so east), fjords, islands, ferries. My UK-resident sister reckons Anacortes is "where God goes on vacation".
Sure the winter climate is wet and soggy, but we don't freeze our tails off. We can get several weeks when the local airport ATIS says "800 broken, 1800 overcast, visibility 2 miles, 45F, rain and fog" Often, the temp doesn't change more than two or three degrees between overnight low and daytime high. Today's high was 49F.
Summers are worth waiting for, though. Not too hot (highs mid 70s) with clear blue skies, humidity in the 20% range, long days and very gentle sunsets. We're at 48 degrees north plus a bit, about 50 straight-line miles from the border with Canada.
