Photo by @paulnicklen #onassignment for @natgeo in #Hawaii. The "train" is a technique invented by #hawaiian watermen to train lifeguards. The first runner, waterwoman @haakeaulana is carrying a 50 lb rock and towing 3 other lifeguards, including her legendary father #Briankeaulana and @samkapoi.

"That's what they say, at least." I think this is one of the things I like best about this series: that even a world as beautiful and amazing as Lorien still has issues; there are unhappy lorics, like Sander and Ella's dad. It shows that perfection is unobtainable, even in other worlds.
