Harlyn Bay is a very wide beach, in north Cornwall (near Padstow) in the UK

I’ve been going on holiday to Harlyn Bay with my family since I was a toddler

My Mum loves going there and so we go there every year

I used to body board there and I used to enjoy catching waves

We’d travel with my friend and his Mum, We’d spend hours in the sea and come out STARVING!

Harlyn Bay mindfulness exercise

I did some work with my Neuropsychologist, Richard on imagery using Harlyn Bay as a subject.

It started as a mindfulness exercise and then developed to help me with putting my head in the water when swimming and helping me with getting my knees up to run.

Re-learning to swim

December 2018: This is how I started my return to swimming; fully supported by woggles and my Physiotherapist and on my back

October 2019: This Nabaiji buoyancy aid was a breakthrough in my swimming without support

March 2022: Now this Subea snorkelling mask really helps with my body position in the water

Fish Finger Burger recipe

I love cooking and eating

This recipe is simple and delicious

Learning to cook again and improve my skills has been a huge part of my rehabilitation

An inside the bun view!

This is the tartare sauce with added red onion and well chopped gherkins – using my Cusinart Food Processor.

I used to use a manually operated chopper similar to a Ninja chopper.

In the early days this chopper was so useful when my knife skills weren’t as good as they are today.
