Abandoned structures on the ground don't bother me, in fact the more the merrier. A little spooky I guess.
Abandoned structures half submerged in sea/ocean? And going to have a snorkel to have a look? That would bother me. But I'd still do it. Freshwater wouldn't bother me too much. Saltwater would give me the creeps.
Those in the photo's look like something from a John Carpenter film so I think I would pass.
Having said that....
I remember an old abandoned government building that was situated in Pittwater which is a waterway north of Sydney, near the Hawksbury River. It's tidal but on the other side of a pennisular (spelling). In years gone by this place was used by government officials to entertain whoever, nowadsys it is rotting but still intact with the encroaching bush on all sides. I discovered this place by accident during the middle of the day. The place gave me the fucking creeps, big time. Something about it just didn't seem right. I told the locals all about it and of course they knew about it but nobody visited it as it was so isolated. It even had it's own rotting wharf, which was spooky and skeletal. I peaked inside and their was furniture and carpets, and old empty swimming pool. I remember pushing the back door open a little but something stopped me from going inside. I guess being alone my imagination got the better of me. But even so I was aware of being struck by a multitude of poisonus snakes. That place would be a haven for all kinds of critters. Bitten there and it was an hour back to civilisation at a good pace. So I backed off.
An empty mansion and just the sounds of the Australian bush, nobody about. Yeah creeped me out but still an excellent find. What was a bit weird was it had what seemed to be an up to date alarm system wired up to it....
Ahh Hexagon Sun of course.
