    Thirty plus met at the Royal Oak, Newport — ordered lunch and shared cars to the starting point which was the parking area on the crest of the road east of Mynydd Dinas.  Paul Casson led the walk.

    A four mile walk east along the ridge over Mynedd Caregog, Carningli and down to Newport promised magnificent view across Newport and Cardigan Bay, however nature intervened, and the mists descended, allowing little to be seen apart from a brief glimpse of the delightful Gwaun Valley as the gloom lifted for a few moments.

    The gloomy weather did not dampen the enthusuiasm of walkers and Phil's knowledge of geology and the environment added colour and interest as the mists swirled around us.

    Carningli looked really impressive as it loomed out of the mists on our approach.

    Then things became even more interesting as our first effort to navigate the final stage of our expedition down into Newport and our lunch at the Royal Oak (from the summit of Carningli) had to be aborted.  Our guide took the wrong path and by the time we found ourselves back on course about a mile had been added to our journey!  😮

    Overall we covered 8km (5 miles).  Many promising to return on a future sunny day!
