    A thick mist

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    1.I sat on the veranda early in the morning watching a thick mist enveloping the mountain peak.
    2. John paddled down the river, and suddenly he was enveloped by a white mist, which prevented him to see the banks.

    Re: A thick mist

    1. Put a comma after "morning". I use the spelling "verandah" but your spelling is also OK.
    2. I would say "John was paddling down the river when he was suddenly enveloped by a white mist, obscuring his view of the banks."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
