Elise wears the cacti set by Katrina Dimick of Portland at Alan Davis Beach in the Ka Iwi Reserve at Makapuu. This Southeast Oahu location is the former home of a ranching family and has since been made into a coastal trail for all to enjoy.

A Note From Elise:

Last fall, I traveled to Oregon for the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s conference which was held in conjunction with the Lewis & Clark Law School. I learned about issues facing wild, farm & domestic animals.

I believe that God created us to care for those around us.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis 1:26

A Pineapple End of Summer Cocktail

Alexa, Play “Pineapple Princess” by Elvis Presley

“Pineapple Princess” is a song by Elvis Presley that was featured in Blue Hawaii, released in 1961. This drink is inspired by the end of summer feels that we’re accustomed to.

Pineapple Princess


  • Vodka, or white wine, to taste
  • Pineapple, or pineapple juice
  • Apple Cider Vinegar

You could garnish this with lemon, a bit of sugar cane, and mint. I have no idea and have no picture to prove it. It’s just a dream for me right now since we are still shut down here on the island.
