Six Sentence Sunday #26

Hello all! Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday. This week I'm happy to be posting six from the start of my short story - The Bones of the Sea - now available as a free download from Smashwords. Small squeee! :) Any and all feedback is appreciated, and I'd love to know what any of you think of the complete story if you feel inclined to download it from here.

The place gave her the creeps. Myasi could admit that to herself now, as she made her third and final survey of the site. The morbid name gifted to the strange construction by early explorers couldn’t have seemed more apt as she sat in the flattened base and gazed up into the lurid green glow of the water. Above her head the twelve skeletal metallic legs of the structure curved up, round and then slightly inward, like a dead spider hunched in upon itself. Or a clawed hand clutching at nothing in its final fatal spasm.
She shivered and checked her wrist display.
