Feedback on itinerary (Carmel)

Hi all,

First, I apologize for the double post, I had one similar to thins in the SF bay area but since the trip also includes Carmel, I was advised to post my questions here as well.

Flying to SF this Friday for three nights and then two nights in Carmel with husband and 3 yr old son.

I've been doing research on things to do and places to eat and I came up with the plan below. Please note that the son is fairly well--behaved and is used to sitting in restaurants eating and watching sesame street or something else on the iphone.

Friday July 30th
3 PM Check-in at Hyatt Regency Embarcadero
4 PM Take the son to Fisherman's wharf to see the sea lions
7 PM back to hotel to change for dinner
8 PM Dinner reservation at 1550 Hyde

Saturday July 31st
8 AM Ferry Market
10 AM Coit Tower
12 noon cable car to chinatown
1 PM if hungry light lunch at R&G or Chung King
2 PM Back to the hotel for son's nap time
4 PM GGB and Crissy Field
7 PM Dinner reservations at Zuni Café

Sunday August 1st

8 AM breakfast at hotel
9 AM Exploratorium
1 PM Back at the hotel for nap time
3 PM Golden Gate Park
7 PM back at the hotel to get ready for dinner
7:45 Dinner reservation at Slanted Door

Monday August 2nd

8 AM breakfast at hotel
10 AM Head down to Carmel
12 PM check in at Highlands Inn and nap time for toddler
3 PM go to Carmel Valley village for wine tasting (Parsonage, Bernardus,Talbott)
7 PM take some wine and cheese or sushi (any recommendations here?) and head to Carmel beach to watch the sunset

Tuesday August 3rd
8 AM Breakfast at hotel
9 AM Drive to Monterrey for the 17 mile drive
1 PM back to carmel for nap time
3 PM Possibly pack light lunch from (suggestions here?)
3:30 PM Go to Point Lobos Park and spend the afternoon there
8:00 PM dinner at pacific's edge

Please provide any input and suggestions. What would you change in terms of places and restaurants.

Thanks a lot
