Welcome to the Bay! This blog is a collection of ‘resort owner ramblings’ from Mockingbird Bay…
Hi. I’m Loretta Zortman — owner of Mockingbird Bay Resort. Our small family resort sits on the edge of beautiful Norfork Lake in northern Arkansas. We have 8 cabins, a dock, and pontoon and fishing boats to rent. Life on a resort can be a kick! I’m blessed with the greatest family. Frank, my DH (“dear husband”), is awesome. He wears all the hats of the resort — finance manager, landscaper, boat mechanic, electrician, plumber, computer analyst, security department…the list is never-ending, and he performs each job with his whole heart.
I am a resort owner; and thanks to lots of practice — a toilet detailing pro;
A Christian — searching for meaning to my life through Jesus;
A very recently retired medical transcriptionist after 20 years at the keyboard;
A lampwork bead maker — melting colored glass with a torch, winding hot glass on mandrels, adding frit, and annealing with a kiln;
An all-natural soap maker — cold-process soap with lye and oils;
A quilt-maker — watercolor impressionist wallhangings are my favorite;
A comedian, minus the stage (and the audience);
A wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend…
This is my blog. Welcome to another Day at the Bay!
