Looks like the stage has disappeared from view on the webcam, gone horizontal?

Edit: Can see that clearly now

8 days from launch to horizontal on a drone ship landing. They are speeding up.

Maybe a stage that is put out to pasture needs less care. Or they are really getting faster with experience.
You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

How many days total was the droneship out to sea?

021 now mounted onto the recently acquired Falcon transporter and on the move to a SpaceX hangar in CCAFS (one would presume). Photos courtesy of /u/aftersteveo over on /r/SpaceX. The new transporter sure looks nice :)

Aren't they moving it to the hanger at Pad 39-A?

They need the HIF at 39-A for ongoing launch operations. LC-40 isn't active.

They could probably take it to the building at LZ-1, too, if they aren't going to fully refurbish it for another launch.

If the building at LZ1 is ready to go that would be my bet... then they have longterm storage till the site is ready where it's going to be displayed. They aren't going to launch it again.

Nice grid fin shot, will be interesting to compare with the titanium ones:
