    even if it was just to sit

    Hello everybody!

    I was a bit nervous, but excited about venturing out alone alone for the first time since becoming a mother, even if it was just to sit in the laundromat watching clothes tumble dry - from Happy hooligans

    Does "even if it was just to sit in the laundromat watching clothes tumble dry" mean "even if it meant just sitting in the laundromat watching as clothes dried by being whirled in a washing machine tumble/drum?"

    Yes, but clothes dryer, not the washing machine and comma after the first "alone".

    It's a tumble dryer in BrE.
