Niagara Falls w/ my uncle

It was supposed to be My mom, her husband, my uncle and myself today when we went to Niagara Falls. Something came up that my mom and her husband had to tend to, so I ended up taking my uncle for an hour and a half drive to Niagara Falls.
He leaves this Friday back to France and who knows when Ill see him again, so I decided to take him, since he's been so anxious.

I tried my best to not take 'typical' Niagara Falls pictures...so I tried to do my best to capture an emotion or feeling...probably failed...but I did the best I could with numb digits.

We didnt really stop by any casinos or hang out on Clifton Hills...He only cared about the Falls...so we only hung out out there for like an hour and a half and hopped back in the car and drove for another hour and a half back home.

Although nothing overly exciting happened, its always good to spend time with family...and it was a good feeling knowing how happy he was while he was looking at the waterfall...and how satisfied and content he was when he seen it.

"Thats all I needed to see before I left. Just downtown Toronto and Niagara Falls. That completes the list of experiences I had. Im a simple man, I just wanted to see the landmarks and take some pictures to bring back to France to show my friends, your cousins and Auntie."


Of course, there are a million other cool things in Toronto...and in the province...but the time just doesnt exist...

But as long as he feels a sense of fulfillment, then I did my part.
