Last Wednesday, Beth Moseley (@MoseleyPhoto), Ninnie Lear (The Wingman Norwich), and I decided to do an evening Microadventure to the North-Norfolk coast. Microadventures, a brilliant concept invented by Alastair Humphreys, involves taking short trips to explore spots in your locale that you otherwise might ignore, or just doing something a bit different for an evening/night.

On Wednesday I built a site for Kara Cantrell, a startup dating consultant, who needed a site to showcase her professional services.
