Saw this on the map and had to check it out. While there I thought it was a boat manufacturing facility or maintenance place, but after further research I found out that this was a former naval fueling station. In use during WWII and abandoned in the 1970s. They claim cleanup efforts are "underway", but it didn't seem that way to me.

Storage? not sure what this is exactly

Had to cut the trip short, a lot more here that I couldn't see.

And if anyone has an idea about the use of some of these buildings, I'd love to hear it. Not completely sure what some of these were used for.

Nice big machines, surprisingly little graffiti for a place that looks wide open. Gonna go back and see the rest?

Nice find! Military locations are always cool places with interesting history.

For sure. Had such a small window of time to see it then which sucks.
