365 Things to DO – Day TWO HUNDRED FORTY: One of my favorite places to walk/jog is the South Hill Recreation Way. This 3.3 mile gravel path meanders through residential neighborhoods, meadows and woods, crossing several deep ravines, with views across the Six Mile Creek gorge. It passes through the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve. Hiking paths lead off the biking trail into the gorge. http://www.traillink.com/trail/south-hill-recreation-way.aspx

365 Things to DO - Day TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY EIGHT: Hugo at Flat Rock. A dreamy, timeless summer day. Bring a picnic, a book, a kid. Fall Creek gets shallow here – perfect for wading -- and there are giant flat rocks – claim one as your own private island. I love Flat Rock. So does Hugo. And so will you. The perfect place to take any kid of any age. Forest Home Drive. Look for the gravel parking area across from the Cornell Plantations. (No sign)

365 Things to DO – Day THREE HUNDRED TWO: GO to the Hazelnut Kitchen for dinner. You’ll be amazed by the fresh, innovative dishes you’ll find at this chef-owned farm-to-table restaurant nestled in the village of Trumansburg. There’s a little ‘bar’ at the open kitchen that can be the best seat in the house – watching the chefs at work is like seeing a ballet performance. Great place for a date night – very cozy. http://hazelnutkitchen.com/

365 Things to DO – Day EIGHTY SEVEN: Back to the salt mines -- literally. The Cargill Salt Mine in Lansing, NY is like a journey to another planet. Imagine being 2,300 feet under the center of Cayuga Lake, with temperatures in the 70s year-round. It is the deepest rock-salt mine in North America -- remnants of a sea that dried up 400 million years ago. It's not easy getting a tour of the salt mine -- it’s been on my to-do list for years. Perhaps I’ll finally get to check it off in 2014!

365 Things to DO –Day TWO HUNDRED SIXTY TWO: Hike to Pinnacle Rock at Buttermilk Falls State Park. This dramatic 42-foot pillar stands alone in the center of the glen. LISTEN: There’s some acoustical things going on and water and rock create a deep rumbling sound.  A 1.6 mile trail takes you past a series of 10 cascading waterfalls. The main waterfall, Buttermilk Falls is 165 feet high. The natural pool at the base is a swimming area. http://nysparks.com/parks/151/details.aspx

365 Things to DO – Day TWO HUNDRED FIFTY NINE: CAYUGA LAKE CREAMERY, Interlaken NY.  Ice Cream Nirvana. Homemade. As good as it gets. Texture. Flavor. Variety. Generous servings.

365 Things to DO – Day TWO HUNDRED SIX: Happy Hour at Corks and More. A hidden gem. When you find it, you’ll love it! The perfect atmosphere: outdoor patio on the water. Brilliant concept: self-serve wine stations—I love the ability to sample lots of different wines before choosing a fave. Indoor lounge has big comfy couches. Regular bar service, great staff and tapas. http://www.corksandmore.com/
