Oct 7, 2012 What My Eyes Have Seen

What My Eyes Have Seen

L'Anse au Loup's Rodney Barney has a genetic, incurable eye disease. He was declared legally blind ten years ago, and as each year goes by, his vision gets a little worse.

Yet, every Spring, Rodney is back aboard the boat, gutting codfish and hauling herring traps.  On the water, unless you knew the difference, you would never guess Rodney Barney is blind.

And it seems there's no limits to what this blind man can do. In his shed he makes beautiful and complex patio chairs...chairs a woodworker with 20/20 vision would be proud of.

You have to see it to believe it.  The truly inspirational story of Rodney Barney.
