Santiago dreams about many different things in the book. On page 5, "he dreamed of Africa when he was a boy and the long golden beaches and the white beaches, now he lived along that coast every night in his dreams." (pg. 5)
On page 22 of the book, Santiago talks about dreaming of porpoises, lions and of being home in the village all this is going on while he has the marlin on the line and it is dragging the boat.
He dreams of the lions on the beach in Africa, as he lived there when he was a young boy.
