Tyler in the Cruz Bay laundromat
With our last chance for clean laundry, and a little crabs life hanging in the balance, we headed back into Cruz Bay as quickly as we safely could.  We arrived at the laundry just moments before 7pm,  and the woman who wouldn't let us in after 7 the night before, just rolled her eyes as we carried in our bags of dirty laundry! We quickly stuffed the machines, added our detergent, stuck the tokens in, and got everything going.   Tyler even stripped off his sweaty t-shirt and tossed it in.  Wearing only his camoflage swimsuit and sneakers, every other article of clothing he had brought was now in the wash! With the laundry now underway, we moved on to phase 2... saving the crab!  We hopped back in the Jeep, and drove back to the Visitors Center, which was right on the water.   We released the crab in his conch shell into about 4 feet of water, and hoped he wasn't too far gone, and would be able to make it.  Sorry, little guy! We just didn't know you were in there!  We then returned to the laundry and waited out our clothes.  We had everything dried and folded by a little after 8pm, and headed back to Cinnamon Bay.  We made dinner, and packed up as much as we could, to get ready to head back to St Thomas tomorrow.
