''Half way between Carteia and the Spanish lines, runs into the sea a little river, collected from different springs about a mile up the country; on its pleasant banks several Spaniards have established themselves, and planted gardens of orange-trees, sweet canes, pomegranates, and evergreens; the eternal blossom of the oranges, and the advantage of angling in a river full of fish, induced a gentleman of the garrison to erect a little hut of canes under the shade of an enormous walnut, where the officers find beds, and the little requisites for passing an agreeable day in this amiable spot.'' From Francis Carter's two-volume 'A Journey from Gibraltar to Malaga' (1777). Carter (1741?-1783), a traveller and collector of coins, was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries that same year, but died before completing his next work, a study of early Spanish printed books.
