Biarritz: Three days (and nights)

Bayonne ham, assorted meats, puree de piment d'Espelette and Sangrilla make a fine late lunch
It is a quick trip to the South West coast of France, an easy escape from Paris when you’ve had your fill of the weather, the pavement or the ongoing, gloomy economic news. A friend and I hopped aboard  the TGV (train of great speed) from Montparnasse at 10am; by 3:15pm we were sitting down to a late lunch with an ocean breeze and ringside view of the Bay of Biscay.
The lighthouse and palatial Hotel built by Napolean 3 and Eugenie in the distance.
