Z for Zachariah- Diary Entry (marks: 5/5 Term 1, week 7, year 9, school assessment) August 18th I am writing in the afternoon, having eaten my breakfast and lunch.

We spent long mornings burying our heads working on the field, and long afternoons indulging ourselves in the cool, densely-packed forests to the east and west.
