Calling All Experts, Comments on my Itinerary

Ok, I will start by saying "I am a Planner" Always have been, always will be. My family likes a good plan going into a vacation, so we know what's on our plate for the day and it helps us make sure we do everything we want to do while on vacation! I think this started with Disney trips, you can't really go there without a plan, and it has just remained our way of doing things. Anyway, we visited Grand Cayman about 5 years ago, and I just don't recall everything as far as the layout of the island, where restaurants are, etc. Below is my itinerary, I would appreciate input from the experts and any recent visitors, anything/anyplace I should scratch off/add because we are in the area, etc. My family is myself, husband and 10 year old daughter and 8 year old son. Also, a couple questions that come to mind are: Are there any places for a quick lunch right on beach near the Avalon? Nothing fancy, but just assuming we are in water/beach, and don't want to really leave for lunch, is there a restaurant on beach there, or should we plan to make lunch in the condo?

Smushie, a cigar on the balcony, a few cocktails and the parmigiana fries are about the only way to handle Breezes, and then only if it's after the ships have left

Thank you ALL, this is why I like to run my itineraries by the experts... lots of great feedback. I plan to definitely incorporate many of the tips, and rule out/replace a few of the restaurants I originally posted. I definitely want relaxation and beach time, not lots of miles in our rental car! Thank you so much, I am looking forward to visiting and will post a trip report upon return.
