As I am on vacation this week, I was out doing what I do - taking pictures, when I saw several police boats enter the harbor. I thought it a bit odd - so many, but Coast Guard patrol boats enter here regularly around sundown, so I didn't let it disturb my plan to get shots at a spot a 1/2 a mile or so south from here. But soon the peaceful quiet of this rather pleasant evening was disrupted by the sound of helicopters. One flying by would not have been more than white noise (for the city anyway), but this sound was from multiple helicopters and they weren't leaving. Looking up into the sky I knew something was up, and then I noticed a crowd gathering at the other end of the marina, and this sight is what I found when I reached the growing crush of onlookers.
