This story is about an artist from Atlanta who goes on a month-long summer vacation to the coast of Maine to paint the ocean. Over a week before leaving, he starts having continuous realistic dreams where he is back in the late 1800s and meets a fisherman there while studying with the famous American seascape artist, Winslow Homer. The dreams continue during his vacation. Little did he realize how these dreams would affect his present life until he sees an oil portrait painted in 1901. At that moment, his life is changed forever.
