Some good photos of the first stage getting towed into Port Canaveral:

Interstage looks pretty trashed, but otherwise good shape. I am sure the engines are trashed and the engine bells are thermally stressed as all get out, never mind all of the surface corrosion. Still, pretty awesome to get it back and be able to pull it apart and diagnose what happened with the actual hardware.

Dragon arrival day!

Dragon was at the 10 meters holding point, but there is a ground issue. The crew was instructed to command Dragon to retreat back to the 30 meters point.

Next try is in about 45 minutes.

Great video - Falcon 9 booster landing in ocean with music from the "Interstellar".
The descent looks even more suspenseful and exciting this way
